Camptown Races

This is actually a two-part arrangement of a well known minstrel melody. The first part (violin 1/cello 1) is the tune itself. The second part (violin 2/cello 2) is very simple, but still melodious. It should be well suited for a beginner who is just learning the notes in first position on the D string.

If all your orchestra players are of similar age and ability, why not switch parts on the repeat? That way the violins may play part 2 and the cellos part 1 the first time, and vice versa the cecond time.
