aboard as students learn about nineteenth-century
American travelers who would jump aboard boxcars
and journey to wherever their next destination
leads. The sounds of the West abound in this
lighthearted hobo tune, where audiences will
hear the train whistle emanate from the orchestra.
Students will develop their into-the-string
fiddle bow stroke and have half- and whole-step
finger patterns reinforced through a modulation
from the key of C to D.
