Product Details


New from the Philharmonic series, this collection is an absolutely perfect way to introduce Celtic fiddling to your youngest string players! Eleven tunes from the Celtic fiddling tradition are presented first in a simplified, very easy "Basic" version of the tune printed with note names in the note heads. The tune is also presented in an "Advanced," but still accessible version of the tune. Lyrics are included where applicable. The optional accompaniment CD features recordings of the Basic and the Advanced tune as well as a back-up track for play-along at home or in class.
