Students learn songs more quickly than they learn tunes. These 77 little songs are easy and fun to sing and play. They are graded according to finger patterns and bowings. These pieces will be a great help through the periods of boredom and frustration some students experience. They contain duet parts for teacher or other students and are ideal for group or private teaching. Violin, viola and cello books can all be used together.
