Doris Gazda has the knack for writing appealing and fresh material for young string players, as her innovative technique collection, High Tech for Strings amply demonstrated. Her new folio is sure to duplicate that success. It is a wonderful collection that includes familiar folk songs, classical themes, seasonal carols and original tunes ! 12 selections in all. Each part book and the score includes a CD that has a demonstration performance and a play=along track for each piece. There is also a piano accompaniment part. The collection is progressively arranged and each tune demonstrates and deals with a particular pedagogical challenge designed to guide the young musician toward the goal of mastering his or her string instrument. Emphasis is placed throughout on acquiring the best habits in the fundamentals of good string playing: proper tone, intonation and control of the bow. String Town Tunes will be a great way to improve and enrich a beginning string program.
