Alexandra Ostroff, one of our Customer Service Supervisors, has some great news for the Suzuki violin crowd out there: SHAR now has the revised edition of Book 6 in stock! Alexandra offers a sneak peek below.
We are so happy to see the newly revised edition of Suzuki Book 6 for violin in stock here at SHAR! The book opens with Tonalization exercises. These exercises focus on keeping a beautiful tone when shifting. It also includes exercises for shifting from 3rd to 6th position on all strings then revisiting Perpetual Motion in the new position. Be sure to take a special look at pages 9 and 32; they have some great information on the new terms and composers in this book and on Dr. Suzuki’s ways of incorporating other repertoire into his teaching. Handel’s Sonata No. 3 has always been my favorite from this collection of works. I enjoy the contrast between the slower more lyrical movements and the more cheerful dance-like Allegros. Also, be sure to pick up the new revised CD recording featuring William Preucil (violin) and Linda Perry (piano) performing. You can play along with Perry on the piano in the later tracks.
