Strings Extraordinaire! is a progressive collection of classical, traditional, folk, and original performance pieces which provides a quality musical experience for students of different playing levels. Each piece is scored with an advanced, (A), and beginning, (B), part for violin, viola, cello, and bass. The violin/viola and cello/bass parts are correlated for ease in teaching. An optional piano accompaniment part is also provided. The pieces found in Strings Extraordinaire! were selected for their suitability for programs early in the school year, during the mid year and holiday season, and those culminating with end-of-the-year concerts.
