These trios arrangements were scored and compiled basically for recreational playing, yet keeping in mind many of the problems confronting young players. The music is carefully phrased, and unlike many books of this nature, dynamics play an important part. The two categories of compositions are those of a serious nature and folk or traditional songs. Although it is recommended that a trio play this book, it will also be satisfactory for duets. The repeats are optional, but for public performance they should be observed. The melody is always in the first part; for that reason players may alternate parts.
