This collection contains music adapted and arranged especially for the viola. Ideal for the beginning player, it focuses on simple, well known melodies which are both easy and enjoyable. The arranger has carefully chosen the best keys for viola and therefore many songs are not in the keys in which they were originally written. The selections in the beginning of this book use more the treble clef than alto clef, making them easier for beginners and violinists transferring to viola. The piano accompaniment is available as a free download.
Includes: Berceuse (Faure), Greensleeves (traditional), March from "Judas Maccabaues" (Handel), Sarabande (Corelli), Tambourin (Rameau), The Royal March of the Lion (Saint-Saens), Theme from "Swanlake" (Tchaikovsky), and many more.
