Small Ensemble Exercises

These vehicles are three easy pieces for small string ensemble in the styles of funky-Latin, medium swing blues, and jazz waltz. This includes MP3s, worksheets, and flexible score and parts.

These original pieces were created for students and/or beginning improvisers as study/performance/improvisation vehicles. Have fun with them!
