Suzuki: 21 Pieces for Violin with Guitar. By Thomas Heck. Published by Summy-Birchard.
Accompanying parts for guitar to selections from Suzuki Violin School, Volumes 1-3.
21 Pieces for Violin with Guitar is intended to provide interesting alternative accompaniment to the Suzuki Violin School repertoire. The contrapuntal interest and enriched timbral possibilities of the violin-with-guitar combination result in unusually appealing chamber music performance pieces suited for young musicians. The intermediate to advanced level classical guitar notation is supplemented by chord symbols to enable non-classically trained guitarists to accompany the violin line.
The editions of Volume 2 and Volumes 4-8 offered here are Revised Editions. The editions of Volumes 1 and 3 are International Editions, which feature very minor alterations to the notation and text of the Revised Editions. They are otherwise identical to, and fully compatible with, the Revised Editions.
The Suzuki Method is an internationally known music curriculum and teaching philosophy dating from the mid-20th century, created by Japanese violinist and pedagogue Shinichi Suzuki (1898-1998). The method aims to create an environment for learning music which parallels the linguistic environment of acquiring a native language. Dr. Suzuki believed that this environment would also help to foster good moral character (Source: Wikipedia.)
