About Real Music for Beginning Strings
This series includes novelty pieces which are appropriate within the first several months of instruction. Violin 2 parts tend to double the viola, so you don't need to split up your violin section to cover the parts. All pieces come with a piano part to add musical support. Grade 1 - 1.5
