Mary Had a Little Lamb is a nursery rhyme that was written about a real event where a girl named Mary Sawyer brought her pet lamb to school in Massachusetts in 1830. Noted hymn composer Lowell Mason wrote the tune for the original poem shortly after it was written. It is one of the most popular songs for beginning violin, viola, cello, and bass players to learn due to its simple melody consisting of just four notes.
