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 3 provides exciting and varied repertoire with entry-level concertos, sonatas, fiddle tunes, and dance styles (polkas, waltzes, and polonaises). Pieces by composers such as Johann Sebastian Bach, Natalya Baklanova, Antonín Dvořák, Edvard Grieg, Ferdinand Küchler, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Jean-Philippe Rameau, and Georg Philipp Telemann are experienced in both solo and duet form. Level 3 students continue to expand their hand-frame knowledge with the inclusion of new flat keys, while gaining comfort in the second position. Rhythmic challenges are introduced through a variety of meters and syncopation. Articulations such as brush stroke are introduced.
