Look no further for the perfect piece to introduce your students to 6/8 meter! This cool-sounding, minor-keyed jig uses only three basic 6/8 rhythms to give your students the confidence they need to navigate a too-often neglected time signature. Pieces of Eight by Richard Meyer gives every section a turn at the fun and catchy melody while the repeated patterns in the accompaniments will reinforce students' reading of the new rhythms. Destined to become the go-to piece for teaching 6/8 to the young orchestra!
