- Score and a CD with digital files of the parts. Make as many parts as you need – on your honor!
- Concept Maps – built-in lesson plans for each piece
- Rhythm Charts – each volume adds more complex rhythmic combinations
- Alignment with National Core Standards
- Segmented and Multi-level pieces for teacher assignment and/or student choice
- Wide range of musical styles so everything doesn’t sound the same
- Substantial cello and bass parts in the advanced volumes so lower strings don’t feel left out
- String Libs – fun, fill-in-the-blank ( a la Mad Libs) scary, stringy stories, written by Ms. Koger’s students
String Riffs is a refreshing, new approach to young string pedagogy. Stanton’s featured them at their New Music Reading Session in July, 2014 and nearly sold out of our first shipment. If you work with strings in 4th, 5th and 6th grade, these are excellent resources with which to supplement your class method book.
Dan Clark has worked at Stanton’s since 1979, primarily with orchestra music and print promotions. A “working” musician, he’s a classical cellist, a rock & jazz bassist and a folk & country guitarist/singer. His free time is spent with family or reading, gardening, cycling and working puzzles. He also has a reputation as a pretty good joke teller. Seriously.
