Sheet Music Books & Bundles
a selection of my published sheet music for various ensembles in various settings
A Big Book of Beginner Violin Duets
Enjoyable & progressive tunes for students & teachers.
For over 10 years I have been teaching violin and coaching small ensembles, and every year I seem to keep adding to a growing library of arrangements and original pieces for my students and the ensembles in which they play. This book represents a portion of that work.
In it you will find 53 violin duets for beginners to study with their teachers. Your download will include the full score and a set of parts for each player, weighing in at 110 pages.
These little pieces also work well as sight reading for intermediate or slightly more advanced students.
The pieces are sorted in a mostly-progressive way, meaning that the easier duets are at the beginning of the book. The early duets use only the “beginner” finger pattern and simple rhythmic and bowing patterns. New finger patterns, bowings, and rhythms are introduced gradually.
Seeing that the 2nd violin part is meant for the teacher to play, it is indeed a bit more difficult than the 1st violin part, but an intermediate student would also be able to play the part – useful for studio recitals.
I hope this selection of songs will bring you great joy! If you have any questions or comments about the pieces, please feel free to drop me an email. If you play any of these pieces at a recital, I’d love to hear how it went!
A Big Book of Progressive Violin Trios
Enjoyable tunes for student, amateur, and hobbyist ensembles
In this book you will find 39 violin trios for student, amateur, and hobbyist ensembles. Your download will include the full score and a set of parts for each player, weighing in at 199 pages.
The earlier pieces in the book can work well as sight reading for intermediate or slightly more advanced players.
I have sorted the pieces into a mostly progressive order, but it can indeed be quite difficult to put pieces into an absolute rank list of difficulty, so just jump forwards and back as you see fit 🙂 .The difficulty curve from start to finish is quite noticeable – hopefully this provides a nice vehicle for conquering new technical ground! On the whole, the 1st violin part is the most challenging, and the 3rd violin part the least challenging. Be sure to swap parts around every now and then to give everyone a decent workout.
It is my hope that this collection of music will bring many hours of fun for you and your ensemble mates! If you have any questions or comments about the pieces, please feel free to drop me an email. If you play any of these pieces at a recital, I’d love to hear how it went!
