Possums Over the Moon

What is it?

Possums Over the Moon is a teaching resource composed and developed by Eugenie Teychenné for Beginner String Programs.

It provides curriculum and structure for the first year of string group teaching, using online audio/visual tools to teach repertoire and technique in the classroom.

The pieces are composed and arranged for full string ensemble (violin, viola, cello & double bass), with sequential and parallel learning across all the instruments.
