This is a celebration of music from the time the pioneers explored the vast reaches of North America. A presentation of eleven imaginative and idiomatic arrangements for elementary viola (grade 1-3) with piano. Helpful background notes help players to understand the style and spirit of the music. The book is also compatible with the cello and violin editions, giving an opportunity for young players to experience ensemble playing at quite an early stage.
