24 Total Pages, 12 Arrangements
Please Click on Christmas Carols for a complete Song List.
This Volume is an excellent way to introduce viola students to the magical world of double stops! The student plays a duet with their teacher of a Christmas Carol. After playing the duet, the student goes immediately to the double stop solo, where the same, identical notes written in the duet are rewritten for just one player.
It is written for students in late book three to early book four of Suzuki or for traditional students studying perhaps Seitz or Telemann concerti. There are lots of octaves with open strings, thirds without 4th fingers and both major and minor sixths. A simple, optional piano accompaniment is included and will be sent to you as a download.
