MULTIPLE LEVEL STRING SERIES
The purpose of the pieces in the Multi-level Series is to give the teacher short compositions that deal with technical problems that relate directly to the playing of string instruments, and also musical problems that are common to all instruments. Within this context, the compositions are designed to involve not only the advanced students who would be confronted with the technical problem presented in each piece, but also beginners and less advanced students. Most compositions can be used in the classroom or in a concert setting.
Two new selections are available in this series. Heavy Walker and Scaly Things present teaching opportunities for string groups with various levels of student progress.
