Including the same titles as Hymn Melodies: Double Stop Solos and Duets For Violin, Volume I, this book in the double stop series continues at a much higher level of difficulty. All arrangements are in both Duet and Double Stop formats as in Martha's earlier books, Christmas, American and Favorite Melodies.
Martha's novel concept to learn double stops begins by playing duets first, with the identical notes combined and rewritten as a double stop solo on the opposite page. As students play the duets first, their ear is given a nice example to help them along as they learn to play the double stop solos.
Volume II is for students that are in Suzuki book 6 and above (Fiocco Allegro, Handel Sonatas, Bach A Minor) and has challenges galore! You will find double stops in many higher positions and bowings that are equally challenging. Volume II is for a very technically solid player. Ideal for church services and special occasions.
