My sweet little Violin student Miss F. just adores cats! When I wrote one piece of “cat themed music” for her (and she practiced it roughly one thousand times more than normal) I just HAD to keep writing more cat themed music!
“A Violin Cat” book has 12 different pages of songs and activities for your budding Violin students. As you can see in the picture above, the piece “Here Kitty” uses open strings with familiar “twinkle” rhythms. There are also a few worksheets that are approved by my students as being “fun” and these worksheets incorporate the terms and concepts used in the pieces. Each piece also has some type of teaching tip or helpful instruction for the student!
My pieces start at Pre-Twinkle A level and progress to harder Suzuki Book 2 level pieces.
These songs are also a great opportunity to have fun while introducing a tricky concept, like using two down bows back to back for the first time and playing a waltz which involves the student learning to use “unequal” bow distribution.
As you may notice in Beethoven’s Cat, some pieces are arrangements classical pieces or folk songs, others are original pieces. Students love playing a piece and then recognizing the tune! That is a very rewarding moment for a beginner!
The songs at the end of the book are much smaller notes comparable in size to Suzuki Book Two, so you will be able to use this book with many students at different levels. Another fun way to use the book is to have intermediate students play these songs in different positions to discover which position “works best.”
Don’t forget that with a STUDIO LICENSE included you are able to legally print as many copies you wish for students in your private studio for LIFE! If you love my book, please tell a teacher friend and check out my other books:
