Beautiful original pieces by author Janice Tucker Rhoda including a piece called "Shinichi" dedicated to pedagogue Shinichi Suzuki. Teachers will enjoy playing along with students at their lessons and students can be paired up to play duets with each other in private practice or at group recitals. There are several harmonies to many of the melodies from ABCs of Violin Book 1. Student's reading skills improve greatly with this first experience playing in a small string ensemble with these lovely duets!
