Teacher and recording artist Craig Duncan has penned yet another excellent solo collection for the violin student. These solos are well within the capabilities of the beginning violin student playing in first position. The compositions feature works by Bartok, Purcell, Haydn, von Gluck, Handel, Telemann, Corelli, Kabalevsky, Beethoven, Mozart, C.P.E. Bach, J.S. Bach, and Dandrieu. Keyboard accompaniment is included. These pieces are excellent for recitals or contests, and can be used to teach important techniques. Includes a 20-page pull-out part for the violin.

    They have almost everything about musical books and sheets. When you could not find what you need, go to them. Also prices are reasonable.

    A nice collection of Baroque pieces and classic tunes in large, clear print. A good transition from method book to 'real music'.
