NOTE TO TEACHERS
Whilst some teachers introduce the bow from the outset, others delay its introduction until the left hand
position has been established. All the pieces in the open string sections (with the exception of Pagoda Music )
are playable bowed or plucked. However, those marked pizz. do sound better when played pizzicato. .
1 - Pagoda Music
Using the ‘pointing’ finger on your right hand, gently strum
the strings from G to E.
2 - Downs & Ups
Pluck or bow each string 4 times, from E to
G and then back from G to E.
Open Strings – by rote
3 - Ups & Downs
Pluck or bow each string 4 times, from G to
E and then back from E to G.
Open strings – String Street Zoo
G is for gorilla, beating his chest,
D is for dormouse, having a rest.
A is for alligator, swishing his tail,
E is for elephant, big as a whale!
Open strings – by note
4 - String Street Soul
The time signature tells us both how many and what type of beats
there are in each bar.
In both ‘String Street Soul’ and ‘Ravioli Rock’, listen to and echo what
your teacher plays.

5 - Ravioli Rock
Play ‘Ravioli Rock’ using the ‘foodie’
rhythms below, and make up your
own. If you are being taught in a
group, then take it in turns to be the
‘leader’.
