This volume builds on the techniques explained in Children's Fiddling Method Volume 1. While created with children in mind, this book is equally well suited for adults, violinists, and string teachers. What sets this method apart from others is that the tunes will first be played slowly, unaccompanied, so that you can hear the notes and how the tune goes. Then, an arrangement follows which is more up to tempo with backup. All of the tunes will be broken down into parts for easier learning, and new fiddling techniques will be explained as they are introduced. Often, different versions will be offered for the same tune, providing variety and a way to learn more concepts, skills, and ideas that can be used in other tunes. The goal is to play along with the extensive online audio. Special features of this volume are some optional twin fiddle parts and tips on twin fiddling. These pieces are great for teachers to use with students or for students to play with friends. Includes access to an extended length online audio.
