Lakeland, Florida (March 15, 2022) – Excelcia Music Publishing announces the new release of Take a Bow, Progressive Fiddle and Folk Tunes for the String Ensemble, arranged or composed by experienced educator, string player and composer Caryn Wiegand Neidhold. A perfect intermediate step between method books and performance literature for young string players and ensembles, the set of newly composed and arranged works in Take a Bow is comprised of progressive works to help strengthen fundamental string techniques for all instruments in the classroom, small chamber groups or in individual instruction.  

Each of the 19 pieces in Take a Bow has a line for melody and a line for harmony, making each work meaningful for individuals as well as groups – while at the same time giving teachers the flexibility to meet the unique needs of their ensembles. The series culminates with five string orchestra arrangements that complete a progressive journey for students, adding a remarkable value to this already packed resource. In the student books, the Melody & Harmony lines can be used as solos, duets, sections, or full ensembles.  Teacher and Student books are sold individually, and there are optional Piano and Percussion parts as well as optional Violin II (Viola T.C.) parts included in the back of the Teacher book.

Take a Bow has been road tested for eight years in the classroom, and thanks to feedback from students and teachers alike, it has evolved into this powerful resource,” explains author Caryn Wiegand Neidhold.  “I’m excited to see it finally in print and available to intermediate students and their teachers everywhere!” 

Author Caryn Wiegand Neidhold is a composer and arranger with an extensive background as a middle school educator, Suzuki teacher, and youth symphony conductor and coach. She has years of performance experience as a violist and violinist with orchestras, including the Reno Philharmonic, Reno Chamber Orchestra, New World Symphony, Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra, and the Fairbanks Symphony.  Her experience at fiddle camps, in rock bands, and in jazz bands fuels her love for bringing diverse music to young string orchestras. 

Take a Bow Student Books ($8.99) and Teacher Books ($34.99) are available from music retailers and from Excelcia Music Publishing.
