(Technical Studies And Solo Literature For String Orchestra And Individual Study) by Doris Gazda. This exciting new method includes a well-planned mixture of the technical studies needed for the advancing student with the great music that makes it worthwhile. The following subjects are systematically approached and reinforced by musical examples: first through fifth position, intervals, harmonics and shifting, bowing styles and techniques, vibrato, ornaments and more! This is a great way to help ALL of your players continue to grow and should narrow the gap between those taking outside lessons and those who do not. This is an excellent resource!

Concert Pieces for Teaching Beginning Strings. This is a wonderful collection of familiar folk melodies, memorable classical themes, and highly original tunes accompanied by a play-along CD in each book. This is a progressive book where each tune demonstrates a particular pedagogical challenge that helps the young musician become more aware of the goals in playing a bowed-string instrument. Emphasis is placed on the most fundamental ideals of teaching beginning strings: tone, intonation and bow control.
