Stringpops Christmas are flexible arrangements of festive pieces for young string players: perfect for Christmas concerts or just for fun! Beautifully arranged by Peter Wilson, they are scored for violin, optional viola, cello and double bass (all up to approximately grade 2 standard), plus additional open-string parts so that beginners can be included.
The book contains a score, and the accompanying CD can be used in a computer to access PDFs of all the instrumental parts and print out as many as are needed. Put it in a CD player to hear the free audio tracks of the piano accompaniments: ideal for rehearsals and performances, and an extremely helpful and versatile resource for teachers.

The arrangements are interesting. Melodies are shared around all the parts encouraging players to listen. The keyboard part is important and the glockenspiel part which could be played on a keyboard adds a Christmassy feel.
