Backwards Music (Volume 2) arranged by Heather Figi
13 Classic intermediate level violin pieces on the keys of A, D & G Major and G Minor transcribed backwards to help students practice sight reading skills while solving a musical mystery.
The Backwards Music Level 2 collection picks up where Backwards Music (Level 1) left off, explores more key signatures (A, D & G Major + G Minor), and features intermediate-level pieces. "Umm, what exactly are these?" The Backwards Music arrangements are exactly what they sound like - I take popular intermediate-level violin compositions and transcribe them backward.
"Well, that's an interesting idea, but why?" In theory, I believe that our students should be able to read music at the level they perform at, so this puts that theory to test by using the same pitches and rhythms of the repertoire they study, just organized differently. Also, I love adding fun things like this to spice up my group classes and use with students before an audition as sight-reading practice.
"I just need to see these to understand this concept and make these sound good?" Well then, you are in the right place because all of my collections are uploaded to this very website for viewing in entirety, so you can best evaluate if this is an appropriate resource for you or not. And YES, they sound good - I only chose pleasant arrangements when transcribed backward.
