If you have a couple of friends that play another instrument and you want to play some trios with them for fun or in a performance, then this is the book for you. This collection contains 32 trios in a variety of styles from classical to folk music to original pieces that will be fun to play with any combination of three string instruments. Trios are a great way to learn how to play in a chamber music setting and this unique collection gives you the opportunity to do it with anyone else that plays a string instrument - making the combinations of instruments that can be used extensive. This would be a great collection for use in school setting when those students come in at lunchtime or after school and they just want to play something with some friends. The flexibility of these trios makes them a must-have for any string player.
play in small chamber-music groups was a very beneficial exercise to improve the student's overall musicianship. A simple form of chamber music is a trio. It is an opportunity for the student to play with other students of similar abilities. Aspects of playing such as tone quality, intonation, technique and ensemble skills can be developed during the process of studying trios. These trios are different in that they have many different performance options since all of the books in this series are compatible. During our experience as school music teachers, we have had students that wanted to come to the music room during lunch or after school and they just wanted to play with their friends. However, that was not possible since there is very little material available that is compatible with all of the string instruments. This book takes care of that. A student can now grab a couple of their friends no matter what string instrument they play and have hours of fun playing trios together. Most important they will learn something in the process. The trios have been generally placed in the book in order of difficulty and cover a range of keys that are appropriate for this ability level. Special care has been given to making sure that all parts were on a similar level of ability. Also, most of the musical markings are attached to all systems, and the point size of the music was considered for ease of reading. It is our hope that this collection will help to stimulate and enhance the musicianship of the performers. It was our pleasure to have the opportunity to put together this collection. We hope it is a useful tool for you for years to come.
