Go West Music

Flexible Quartet Series

Bop

(level - easy)

Bop is a "flexible" quartet. It works equally well as a stand alone quartet with four players only or as an expanded ensemble with a number of players performing each of the four parts. The soloist part can be performed by an additional "featured" player or can be shared around the group. This is a fun piece!

Acknowledging the diverse needs of the classroom music teacher, Go West Music has incorporated into the design of these quartets optional keyboard, guitar, percussion and drum kit parts. This allows a range of other instrumentalists to be included in the ensemble work taking place. These optional "add on" parts complement the quartet, but are not essential.
