This qualitative study systematically examines the transfer of chord progression patterns used in different music genres to string instruments. The study emphasizes the art of orchestration, arranging approaches, the visual representation of chord progressions on the piano staff, and the fundamental principles of counterpoint. The chord progression patterns are supported by sample compositions, while orchestration and arranging approaches are presented in a structured manner. Transferring chord degrees and root positions quintintervals to piano and string instruments has been demonstrated. Along with all the presented topics, an arrangement study has been conducted on a school song. It is believed that all the organized musical ideas emerging on the subject can enhance the field of music education. In the example orchestration works, the use of root voice positions quintintervals, generally notating them on the violoncello two octaves below the first violin, lowering the triadic voices of the chords by one octave, and the preferences in distributing the chord voices have resulted in clear and rich tones. As a result of this study, it is recommended to uncover the effects of orchestration and arranging approaches on students.
