The songs Kaleidoscopes Book 2 allow students to develop finger speed and graceful playing. The songs are short enough that the student can work on several songs at a time, mastering each one in a few weeks.

Kaleidoscopes Book 3
$16.00
Book 3 uses Celtic fiddle tunes to develop a quick left hand and fluent string crossings. Melodies such as Last Rose of Summer and Blanche Comme la Neige develop vibrato. Short classical pieces are introduced more fully, with more complex dynamics, articulations and stylistic elements.  Toward the end of the book the student begins to encounter longer (full-page) pieces with contrasting sections, chromatic playing, second position, more frequent shifting, and three-note chords. The CD for this book is currently being completed, so the current price reflects the book only. The CD is expected to be finished by October 31, 2016.
