Viola beginners

Here are some recordings I have made of viola beginner music. These recordings are more in line with the tempi and rhythms I use than the recordings provided in the Suzuki book. I encourage students to listen to both the Suzuki version and my version, but to use my version for playing along during practice. I also encourage students to listen ahead as much as they like, but I ask that they not play ahead in the sequence in order to ensure that they learn everything correctly.

Pop Goes the Weasel Please note that I have left space in the recording for the student to make the “pop!” on the A string.
