Spotlight on Strings level 1 offers a unique approach that teaches students to play with all four fingers on all four strings from the very beginning. A logical sequence of technical exercises, program music, and ensembles offers young string players a comprehensive and positive approach throughout their first year of study. Creativity and self-expression are also encouraged throughout Spotlight on Strings with the inclusion of fun improvisation exercises and music writing assignments.
The Teacher Score/Keyboard books for Levels 1 and 2 include piano accompaniments for much of the program music and ensembles. Especially composed for educators with modest piano-playing skills, the accompaniments can also be played by piano students who wish to become involved in the ensemble experience.
