Carefully selected and curated to support teachers and students in their artistic and technical development, the Violin Series, 2021 Edition includes pieces from a diverse range of eras and styles that represent stepping stones to major violin repertoire. Each level is constructed to link repertoire selections to necessary techniques and corresponding etudes, while illustrating step-by-step connections for developing core skills. Each Repertoire book includes access to quality video and audio recordings by some of North America’s finest violinists and accompanists; both performance and accompaniment-only tracks for each Repertoire selection offer students a model for performance practice and the convenience of accompanied rehearsal at home.
Violin Repertoire 6 features an array of selections from composers such as Ludwig van Beethoven, Harold Birston, Felix Borowski, George Coutts, Charles Dancla, Christine Donkin, Scott Joplin, Bohuslav Martinů, Eduard Mollenhauer, Max Reger, Healey Willan, and Antonio Vivaldi. While focusing on cultivating bow articulations in various styles, the Level 6 repertoire expands the left hand between first and sixth positions by integrating more complex passagework, ornamentation, and increased left- and right-hand coordination.
