Free music for violin teachers

October 21, 2008 at 10:43 PM · I would like to offer any teachers free music from my books, Smart Violin Method, Books 1, 2, and 3. I wrote these books because as a violin teacher i have always needed more music to get certain skills across. In the process, i ended up writing three books. I perform with a Celtic Folk Rock band and had a wonderful classical education in Philadelphia, and recorded a couple of CD's with one of my bands. My creativity in writing parts for bands resulted in these three books, which i composed music in all styles for students. If you would like some of the music which spands beginner to intermediate/advanced, i will be happy to send you some. Simply tell me what level student you have and i'll pdf you a copy of parts of the books. I currently sell them on amazon and use them with my students.

Thank you for your offer of your Smart Violin Method music. After 2 years, my student is not beginner but we have yet to get to the positions.

I'll look at the more advanced stuff when I get back into town on Monday.

Thanks again:)


October 24, 2008 at 04:03 AM · Thank you very much for your generous offer.

October 24, 2008 at 06:10 AM · Hi everyone,

If you want Sandy to have your e-mail address, simply click on her name and e-mail her through the site; she will receive it. But my advice is not to leave your e-mail address out in the open on a web page, ever, because that is how the robots pick them up and put you on the "send copious SPAM" lists.

Just lookin' out for y'all!

Sandy, I'd be interested, too, beg-int-adv like Dottie. Will e-mail you. :)

October 27, 2008 at 03:43 AM · Sandy, thank for the tunes. They are very singable and I am particularly interested in the passages that focus on basic technical elements such as: the arpeggio beginning the tunes and partial scale in thirds; the string crossing; alternating fingers with the open string. I think these are very good melodious studies which will be fun to play and teach. Looking forward to acquiring the complete books/set.

October 28, 2008 at 02:25 AM · Hi

Can you send me a level 1,2, and 3 sample?

Thank you,


October 28, 2008 at 01:01 PM · Jasmine,please send me your email address and i'll send them to you.

thanks, sandy

December 17, 2008 at 08:01 PM · I'd be interested in getting the three levels, beg, int. adv. also. Thanks Catherine
