Joy to the World
Joy to the World is arranged for four guitars. The range goes to high C, first string, eighth fret. The ensemble is written at the easy/intermediate level due to the extended range and intermediate rhythms. Guitar 1 should be played in fifth position. Ideal for Year Two, Quarter Two.
Notice: Because most holiday music is performed in the months of November and December, the skill classifications for holiday music are compromised slightly to fall into Quarter Two. The pieces may be a little easy or a bit challenging for your ensemble due to this compromise.
