Study Sheets for the Bach Double Violin Concerto -
When a student first begins a piece like the Bach Double, it is very useful to extract the more sophisticated and detail oriented parts. I find that when I use this 3 page study sheet the student has a clear idea of what is expected in their home practicing and are less inclined to dive into the actual score and learn it incorrectly.
Bach Fugue (Fuga) from Sonata No. 3 arranged for 3 Violins -
I love studying the individual lines of an unaccompanied Bach Fugue - breaking down the magic, simplicity and genius that is Bach is sublime. I was also interested in hearing what the harmonies would sound like when sustained versus a chord when performed by a solo performer as intended. Lastly, I wanted to make unaccompanied Bach more accessible for younger violinists by dividing the parts among 3 different players. I hope that this gets them motivated about what is to come for them down the road. How exciting to first present this as a trio and then disclose that it is possible to play on one violin!
