String Ensemble (Suzuki)
Prepared and edited by Rick Mooney, a well-known Suzuki teacher, teacher-trainer and member of the Suzuki Cello Committee, these books contain harmony parts to go with many of the pieces in the Suzuki Cello School, Volumes 1, 2 and 3. All of these pieces have been arranged to resemble, as much as possible, the existing piano accompaniments. These ensembles enable a cello teacher (who does not play or have access to a piano) to play harmony parts with students to prepare them for the time when a piano and pianist are available. Also, these parts give additional challenges for the more advanced player during a group lesson. Volume 3 contents are: Berceuse (trio) (F. Schubert) * Gavotte (J.B. Lully) * Minuet from Sei Quintetti per Archi, No. 11, Op. 11, No. 5 (duet) (L. Boccherini) * Minuet from Sei Quintetti per Archi, No. 11, Op. 11, No. 5 (quintet) (L. Boccherini) * Scherzo (duet) (C.
