A compilation of 44 pieces written for solo violin performance for weddings, events, or just practice. Have fun playing Irish and Scottish waltzes, classical pieces by well-known composers, and some original works.
After years of performing with bands and also playing as a soloist, I wanted to share my love of Celtic music and other styles with my students. I started by composing one simple bluegrass-style tune for them, and they were instantly hooked. Over the next year, I completed Book One of the Smart Violin Method. There are now five Smart Violin Method Books, an Easy Tunes book, and a book of Classic and Celtic Wedding Favorites.
