Twinkle variations for violin and viola
My husband (viola) and I (violin) have been asked to play/introduce the instruments at our kids school on Friday to a bunch of kids (3-6 years old)
We thought maybe a twinkle variation? Anyone has the music for that?
Star Wars duo? Again, having difficulty finding that music.
Any help/advice is greatly appreciated.
I know you asked specifically for arrangements of popular music, but I would suggest finding a charming classical duet instead. Mozart wrote a bunch for violin and viola, for example.
I agree that playing some Mozart, especially lively sections, would be good. But be sure to play simple things also -- youngsters watching and listening to grownups playing complicated often can't see the connection between them and what the grownups can do.
How long do you have?
I can tell you that from my experience playing for preschoolers, nothing in the universe is better than "Let it Go" from Frozen.
Some Disney Duets here if you don't feel like arranging: https://www.amazon.com/Disney-Songs-Two-Violins-Instrumental/dp/1540037134/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=disney+duets+violin&qid=1580910497&s=books&sr=1-3
The variations on "Twinkle" are available in sheet music and it would be possible too transpose the bass clef part to alto clef for viola.
Thank you everybody! And one last question, anybody has a Star Wars arrangement for violin and viola?
