The Fiddle Club Favorites for Strings series is a collection of 30 tunes from the folk and fiddle traditions of North America, Ireland, and Scotland, aimed at intermediate-beginner level students of any age who have worked through about half to three-quarters of most any string method book. The books are available for violin, viola and cello , with beginner-level, one-octave folk melodies plus more challenging “ top ten ” fiddle tunes, arranged in sequential order of difficulty, with the same tunes in the same keys in all three books . This means the beginning string student can explore folk and fiddle tunes in a private lesson, and a string teacher can introduce these timeless melodies for all players in a string class environment as well.
