Here is a great little piece for the Easter season. “The Skipping Rabbit” offers a bouncy, choppy melody filled with eighth and dotted eighth and sixteenth notes. The piece would be considered as a Grade Two Toronto Conservatory level piece. Bowing is especially highlighted in this piece as the student is directed to play the entire piece in the lower part of the bow. Add to that the staccato and slurred eighth notes which give the young student some fun challenges. The melody itself is the type that remains in one’s memory after playing the piece. A great start for the young violist.
