Hi, I'm new to the forum and after some advice. I played viola at school up to about grade 3 standard. I haven't played in over 20 years but when my son recently started with violin I got out my viola and really fancy taking it up again. Since its been so long I cant really read music any more, but when I try it comes back very quickly. On the viola I am able to play a tune and a scale so I think I still have the basics.
Could anyone recommend some good music books? I don't think I want absolute beginners because I think I will move on fairly quickly. I do need something quite basic though to get me going again.
Welcome to the forum. Unfortunately, not much has been happening around here lately but that can hopefully change.
Here is a stab in the dark for some books, not knowing your level or interest.
Here a some books I picked up when hubby got me my viola for Christmas
Big Book of Viola Songs Hal Leonard
Mel Bay The American Fiddle Method Volume 1 Viola
Easy Classical Viola Solos
A Tune a Day for Viola
Hope this helps - and happy playing...
The above suggestions may help others who are looking for music to get started or to add to their variety to keep things moving along.
Note: The second suggestion's link in Violaman's suggestion is no longer active. I suggest a search of the title.
The other options appear to be Amazon because it say a Kindle preview is not available, so an internet search of those titles should find them, if they are still available. I may update those posts at a later time.
