Stringpops makes string playing more fun than ever! You can work and play at the same time. Children will love the catchy tunes and at the same time, each piece has its own place in a carefully planned progression that gives the young violinist or cellist a thorough grounding in string technique, starting with the simplest open string patterns and continuing in first position. The series is designed to be suitable for both class and individual teaching, and the violin and cello parts can stand on their own or be combined as a duo. Penny Dann's illustrations perfectly capture the spirit of the music.
