The Salamander Samba Composed by Lauren Bernofsky. For String Orchestra. Published by Grand Mesa Music Publishers. (Catalog # GMMOR81)

Holy guacamole! How can a piece so technically simple be so much fun and sound so good? Using nothing but open string pizzicato, the only challenge is counting and playing the notes in the right place while keeping good hand position. The rhythm patterns change so your students will need to stay focused. What glues it all together is an essential, syncopated and infectiously jazzy piano part that provides a Latin feel and color, with a solid pulse and great groove, while your beginner string students drop their notes in at the right time - and everybody is having fun making music. This tune is one of the reasons why Ms. Bernofsky has become a real favorite of Stanton's string staff. Super!
