New Day Music Scores: Explore a World of Music!

Are you Looking for Quality Ethnic String Arrangements?

New Day Music Scores provides educational arrangements for string orchestra in a variety of world music styles.

These educational ethnic arrangements represent a variety of world music genres. Care is given in each part to replicate authentic bowings, and embellishments.

Traditional melodies for orchestra, quartet, or solo violin with piano or chordal lead sheets from Turkey, Ukraine, Romania, Ireland and more!

Written for -- and inspired by -- Students

Most of these arrangements were developed from working closely with students: writing parts to realize their strengths, address their weaknesses and give them joy in the process of developing their musicality. Many melodies are repeated multiple times so that the ear becomes aquainted with them but the textures and tunes rotate amongst the players keeping the music fresh and alive.

Convincing and compelling, all parts are arranged with authentic bowings, harmonies and ornementation. The Buffalo Suzuki Strings thrilled the Irish with our arrangement on their tour to Ireland.

These educational ethnic arrangements in a variety of world music genres are flexible in their instrumentation, allowing non-stringed instruments such as flute, accordian, and percussion, to participate if desired.

Students love these lively traditional melodies that are arranged in such a way that everyone can join in the fun.
