    Fun & educational piece

    Comments:

    4/4 for Four is a solid educational quartet. It can be used in a variety of contexts- as an introduction to quartet repertoire for college-aged students, or as a challenge for more advanced but younger students (middle or high school level). Plus, it isn't too long and it is enjoyable for the audience when played well. The piece ends with high energy.
