Strike up the Band acts as a prelude to the suite , inviting the listener in, and the bass player only uses pizzicato in this piece.

Snake in the Grass rounds off the suite and has a slinky and mischievous feel to it.
Four Fun Pieces for Beginner Bass was premiered at Wells Cathedral School (Somerset) on 30 September 2007 by Sophie Heyes (Double Bass) and Mark Cracknell (Piano).
