Contents and Reviews

Fiddle Time Sprinters builds on the firm technical and stylistic foundations of Joggers and Runners by featuring: pieces using a finger pattern, 2nd and 3rd position pieces, a range of bowing techniques, original pieces and duets in a range of styles, pieces using modes (to link with Fiddle Time Scales Bk2) and CD performances/backing tracks. Piano accompaniement available in a serparate volume.

"This is a great book for introducing 3rd position in a fun way! Having a CD backing track helps with tuning in the higher position. Ideal for post ABRSM grade 2 students."
