Hello Suzuki teachers! I would like to let you know of a new fiddle book and CD set that I have just completed called “Fiddlin’ Favorites.” It is designed as a supplement to the Suzuki repertoire, and violin students love playing these tunes in additional to their Suzuki songs. The table of contents lists the fiddle tune paired with the appropriate polished Suzuki piece.

This book and CD set includes over 15 solo tunes, several ways to begin and end tunes, and twin fiddling duets. Please visit my website to see the table of contents, a sample page, and audio excerpts:


You are also welcome to email me with any questions you have. [javascript protected email address]

I have been very impressed with “Fiddlin Favorites.” It is well organized. The book does such a great job of correlating to the concepts taught in Suzuki book 1 and 2. The book uses similar bowings, rhythms and finger pattens as what the students are learning in Suzuki book 1 and 2. This is an excellent supplemental source to reinforce what the students are getting in Suzuki. “Fiddlin’ Favorites” provides students with the opportunity to learn how to play varied styles of music. I would highly recommend this book!!!
