I teach this piece initially by singing it, either to Doh and Soh with hand signs, or to note names with other actions like standing and sitting. I rarely show the music, instead relying on their aural memory. You can also ask them to guess which string plays the high note if they start on D. This encourages them to use their ears and to differentiate between the strings. This is a piece I return to once the bow has been introduced.
