String Festival Solos are economical collections of transcriptions by Samuel Applebaum. In two volumes for each instrument, the solos are in progressive order of difficulty. Each volume contains nine pieces -- all classic titles in the Applebaum teaching repertoire. Some of these have been hard to find. Volume I progresses from Level 1 to Level 2, Volume II progresses from Level 2 to Level 3. The solos are useful for teaching technique, dynamics, phrasing, and overall musicianship. String Festival Solos are excellent for recitals, auditions and performances for assemblies, concerts or festivals. Contains: Two Austrian Folk Tunes (Kohler) * Rigaudon (Lee) * First Sonatina (Drew) * Minuet (Pleyel) * March (Clarke) * Second Sonatina (Drew) * The Strange Man (Schumann) * Two Classical Pieces (Reinagle) * Adagio and Allegro (Galliard).

  • July 02, 2009 A great beginning Double Bass Book!

    I've been teaching bass about 15 years, and this book is great (and so is volume I)! I hope it never goes out of print. If you teach bass to kids, you need both volume I and volume II of this series. If you are a beginning bass student...

    , I think you will really enjoy playing the music in this book. It's pretty inexpensive, looks clean on the page and has some decent music. It's nice to have an accessible tool like this as a teacher to use with my students. Buy it!
