Many of the National Standards for Music Education can be easily implemented into the classroom setting with the varied components All for Strings has to offer. Book 2 devotes many exercises and musical selections to the development of major and minor left hand finger patterns for all string players, as well as shifting for cellists and bassists. New bowing styles are introduced, and more advanced rhythm patterns are incorporated. As in Book 1, a great variety of solos, duets, trios and ensembles are included - perfect for performance!

    Book 2 for violin further concretes in the concepts learned in Book 1, and then teaches harder rhythms like triplets and 16th notes, more difficult keys, dynamics, and other things. Book 2 prepares students for Book 3 which teaches the final steps to vibrato and teaches 3rd position.In the...

    back of Book 2 there are scales for the easier keys, along with many variations, and basic vibrato exercises which are continued in Book 3.
