Without a doubt, one of the coolest, original swing tunes for young players that you will ever find.  Thom Sharp found the perfect mix of walking bass line (your bass players will think they are the hippest people in the room) a generously shared, swingin' eighth note melody with an infectious hemiola that is an "ear worm" just waitin' to happen and a jazz harmonized counterline that naturally fills in the space in between.  All in first position and the key of D, there are a few rhythms to reinforce with your students, then set them free to feel the groove.  Bees are Boppin' is Stanton's best-selling jazz chart for string orchestra.  It needs to be in your music library, if it's not already.
