Fiddlershop is looking for sheet music suggestions. We would like to offer far more sheet music to satisfy our customers.

Your input would be appreciated.

Would you be able to do some of the beginner ones in viola and cello form? I was able to change it up, but a lot of newbies can't or they see it all as violin and would most likely just skip over it. 

I wouldn't do them all, just some that are in different keys to get introduced to different keys.

Would that be possible? I don't know how much work it would be.

Oh, wait, @Fiddlerman, are you talking about sheet music in your learning tools or to sell in your shop? Are you trying to get an idea of what consumers are looking to buy?

@Fiddlerman

I've attached a list of items I've used that I think are good; some may be of the beaten path.  Is that what you're looking for?

I would definitely be interested in the first book in SharonC’s list in her attachment, Morley, Tom. Learn to play Irish Trad Fiddle, if the price is right.

Also, I would purchase intermediate viola and cello, not way up in intermediate viola. It is just that the beginner are too basic, but many intermediate are too far beyond me from the the first page. Viola, more so, than cello. 

I have a lot of violin to play with, but I am interested in the Morley, Tom. Learn to play Irish Trad Fiddle mentioned by SharonC. I am lacking in interesting pieces for viola. Fiddle for viola, simplified, not too advanced, not so much classical - I just cannot get into it at all, pop.

On all string instruments, early intermediate is one of those spots where searching for level-appropriate music can get intimidating.

I would suggest carrying Barbara Barber's "Solos for Young Violinists" and "Solos for Young Violists" series, along with Carey Cheney's "Solos for Young Cellists" from the same publisher.

Also consider carrying some of the more commonly played student violin concertos (Seitz, Rieding, etc.) as stand-alone sheet music along with the commonly played intermediate concertos. While some of those pieces appear in the Suzuki books, Suzuki used editions that deliberately made some pieces more difficult.

All three series (violin, viola, and cello) are graded compilations of short solos that go all the way from beginner to early advanced level. There are also companion CDs available for each volume that contain both full recordings and piano accompaniment tracks.

@AndrewH -

I think you've got a great suggestion here with this series. 

What would entice people like me, and be special for the Fiddlershop - a famous Gibbles review!  

 

After previously finding some great Irish music videos for "Ceddlers", I fell in love with Ilse De Ziah enough to want to play her arrangements on violin! 

She has a book I'd recommend, of music she arranged, "Sacred Irish Music for Solo Cello" - Music from Ancient to Modern Irish Sacred Traditions.

Thought I posted a video of hers somewhere - guess I'll post 1 in the Irish Genre.
