Product Description


September 2011-Duration 4 minutes 30 seconds.  Written for Gary Woolf and the Banda Di Musica.

This short waltz is named after an imaginary, childhood character of mine a magic toy-maker. Its 2 melodies span 36 years. The first tune came to me when I was 8 years old and on holiday in the Co.Donegal town of Buncrana, west Ireland. Back then there was a small shop on Buncranas high street that sold everything from milk to DIY tools. And the name of the shop was John Thinn And Son. I thought this was an awesome name and I remember the shop owner, the real Mr. Thinn, being a lovely kindly, rather shy and gentle man. And this inspired my childhood minds character of Mr.Thinn the magic-toy maker.  The 2nd theme arrived in September 2011 as soon as I had decided that Mr.Thinns first tune had waited long enough and now needed to find a permanent home. Once again writing for the wonderful Banda di musica has given me a unique chance to release an old and very special melody that has lain neglected and home-less for over 3 decades. The resulting piece is light hearted, fun and in a simple ABA form.

There are 2 arrangements;

No. 1 School Arrangement ; Violins 1, 2 and 3, Cellos 1 and 2

No. 2 Standard Arrangement ; Violins 1 and 2, Viola, Cello and Double Bass

There are a few violin and cello solos throughout which are to be played by the section leaders. These are of a more advanced difficulty.
