    Nestor the Long-Eared Donkey

    Well, again my wife asked me to orchestrate a tune for her children's choir. Only this time, the piece is strictly for pre-schoolers, which means I had to keep the music very simple. Let me know what you think!

    The piece is "Nestor, the Long-Eared Donkey"

    Nicely done, FossMan.

    Preparing children's literature -- especially for so young a group -- is much more of a challenge than many may realize.

    I totally agree. Making simple accompanyment is so hard! I don't know how many times I had to delete a section of the work because I had gone off on a rythmic or harmonic tangent that would just confuse the kids.

    This is adorable. It is not overwhelming accompaniment and I don't think that the kids will have any trouble singing along. Nicely done.

    Best,

    Call me 'pre school' if you will but I thought that this a delightful and fresh little melody.

    Well, thanks, Frank. I think I'm finding that orchestrating simple stuff will help me learn how to orchestrate better.
