Whether you call it Aura Lee or Love Me Tender, this is a beautiful song. I wanted to offer something that anyone could play and still have quality. If you want something to program with your very young players, you might enjoy this one. I have placed many rests in this number to make the breathing easier. This makes it easier for the student to “fill up the horn” for good tone. There are no notes faster than a slow ¼ note.
