Magic Carpet: Concert Pieces for the Youngest Beginner
The pieces in Magic Carpet use the same rhythms as the Twinkle Variations in the Suzuki Violin School Volume 1. The first eight pieces in the book are played on open E (or open A), and have an optional melody part, which may be played by teachers or more advanced students. Magic Carpet also includes five pieces which are designed to develop string crossings and finger placement. On the CD each piece is recorded at two speeds. The piano accompaniments and CD accompaniments are exciting and fun to play along with.
