Viola Recordings

In addition to listening to your Suzuki CD, here are some other tools to help you learn and perfect your pieces!

                                 Listening 

is one of the most important things you can do to improve your playing and learn your pieces quickly.  Listen especially to these recordings of the violin and the piano playing together at a nice relaxed speed.

                               Playing 

along with a recording is a fun way to make sure what you are playing is correct.  Play along with these recordings that include directions.

                  Rehearsing 

with a pianist is the best way to prepare for a recital, but since we don't all have access to a pianist, here's the next best thing.  Before a performance, or even as you're preparing to pass a piece, practice with these recordings of just the piano part.
