Carefully selected and curated to support teachers and students in their artistic and technical development, the Violin Series, 2021 Edition includes pieces from a diverse range of eras and styles that represent stepping stones to major violin repertoire. Each level is constructed to link repertoire selections to necessary techniques and corresponding etudes, while illustrating step-by-step connections for developing core skills. Each Repertoire book includes quality video and audio recordings by some of North America's finest violinists and accompanists; both performance and accompaniment-only tracks for each Repertoire selection offer students a model for performance practice and the convenience of accompanied rehearsal at home.

Violin Repertoire 2 provides an array of character pieces to capture students’ imaginations with music written by Violet Archer, Ludwig van Beethoven, Edward Elgar, Mikhail Glinka, Dmitri Kabalevsky, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Franz Schubert, and Pyotr Il’yich Tchaikovsky. The selections are varied and compelling, from arrangements of traditional favorites to exciting, newly commissioned works from 21st-century composers. Level 2 explores rhythmic pulse and organization of meter, while integrating dotted rhythms with hooked bowings, increased slur combinations, and bow articulations. Position work is explored in first and third position with additional focus on major and minor keys.
