New Music This Week



At this time of year, music publishers bring out their new publications. Most of them are single books of repertoire - few are a complete new series of books, let alone a new tutor book.

This week I have added a brand new violin tutor series called Violin Playing to the website; it takes students from the very beginning to grade 8 standard, which is most unusual. There are 5 books:

  • Book 1 - preparatory/initial grade

Book 2 - grades 1 to 2

Book 3 - grades 3 and 4

Book 4 - grades 5, 6 and part of 7

Book 5 - grades 7 and 8

There are also two repertoire books to accompany the series; the First and Second Book of Concert Pieces.

Other additions to the website: Marcellos 2 sonatas for viola in G and C, and the new third) edition of Abracadabra Cello.

On the subject of the postal strike, while there are some delays to post to and from VS Music Supplies, they don't seem to be long delays, with post taking a day or two longer than it should in most cases. Let's hope it continues that way.
