Backwards Music, Levels 1 & 2
The backwards music collections are in the process of being edited. In the meantime, I have combined the two volumes into a single collection. You can view Level 1 on this page and Level 2 by clicking here.

Backwards Music for Violin, Level 1 is a 36-page *eBook and includes 19 Classic tunes in the key of A Major transcribed backward to help students practice reading skills while solving a musical mystery.
Backwards Music for Violin, Level 2 is an 18-page *eBook available and includes 13 classic intermediate-level pieces in the keys of A, D & G Major, and G Minor transcribed backward to help students practice reading skills while solving a musical mystery.
These arrangements are a total win:
1- Students practice sight reading skills while solving a mystery (yep, that’s as fun as it sounds; these are a favorite in my studio).
2- Teachers have suitable sight reading material for their students since these arrangements use the same pitches and rhythms that most beginning-level students play in their repertoire.
3- Parents have a fun way to support young musicians prepare for auditions and enforce reading skills at home.
Why? I believe that our students should be able to read music at the level they perform at. 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.
