Eight Trios for String Trio
Eight Trios for String Trio: Small Chamber Music Trios for Violin, Viola and Cello (Suomi Music 2020)
The purpose of Violin Friends family of music books is to inspire beginning string students and to give them a lot of joy with music. Eight Trios for String Trio have been made for students to help them to perform as a group, to practice chamber music together and to develop listening to each other. The trios help students to learn new technical skills like the 3/4-time, the jumping bow, double-stops, trills, glissandos, pizzicati, string crossings and the ricochet.
