Description

This collection of twelve very easy original pieces was written with the aim of providing players in the earliest stage of their musical development with solo and group performance material. Although very elementary, the pieces are composed in a wide variety of styles in order to provide a well-balanced musical diet for the young performer.
All of these pieces for young violists in their earliest stages of learning can be performed as solos with piano accompaniment (free download) or in unison with others. Some have an optional 2nd part to enrich the ensemble. Whilst these 12 pieces are written specifically for the viola and address the challenges a beginner violist would encounter, the last four pieces are also “key friendly” for beginners on most instruments and are therefore suitable for mixed instrumental groups. These same four pieces appear in books for other instruments in the Debut series. A CD providing stimulating demonstration performances for listening as well as “minus-one” accompaniments for playing along at home.


• Free download of the piano accompaniment parts
• CD with play-along version and full version for practising at home

A further option: mixed ensemble! Whilst these twelve pieces are written specifically for each respective solo instrument, the last four pieces are also suitable for mixed instrumental groups. These same four pieces appear in books for other instruments in the Debut series – great fun for all!

Reviews
