String Basics – Steps to Success for String Orchestra is a comprehensive and impressive resource for those learning the String Bass (or Double Bass) at grade 3 level and beyond. Written by award-winning authors, this book covers the essentials for this level, as well as including a wealth of digital and interactive resources.

 

Book 3 for String Bass introduces independent instrument tuning, then the critical review section prepares students for unfamiliar major and minor keys, the chromatic scale and advanced note and rhythm combinations. Students will experience all this before practising a number of vibrato development exercises specifically designed for ensembles. Shade and Woolstenhulme have managed all this while keeping the content interesting and engaging, using technical exercises together with a diverse range of classical and cultural music.

The String Basics series is widely-acclaimed for its use of practical activities, world music, classical themes as well as original compositions. All of these features combine to help students learn the fundamental and advanced tenets of playing a stringed instrument in an orchestra. This book, for the String Bass, contains step-by-step instructions where necessary to make everything as clear as possible, as well as full-colour photographs enabling the student to see exactly how it should be done. Not only this, but the duets, rounds, trios and orchestra arrangements enhance the student’s ability to play in a wide variety of settings with different numbers of fellow musicians.

As with all books in the String Basics series, the Interactive Practice Studio is included, which is accessible on any Windows or Mac computer and contains a fun and inspiring mix of biography, history, photography, audio and video to enhance learning. A DVD is also included featuring lessons taught by the authors in a classroom setting making this book perfect for students and teachers alike.

String Basics Book 3 by award-winning authors Terry Shade, Jeremy Woolstenhulme, and Wendy Barden, continues with a strong pedagogy and step-by-step sequences of instruction preparing students for grade 3 performance literature and beyond. Book 3 opens with independent instrument tuning, then a critical review section allows students to be prepared for shifting & position work, new major & minor keys, the chromatic scale, and advanced note values & rhythm combinations. All are reinforced with technical exercises and a wide sampling of classical and cultural music. Book 3 concludes with vibrato development exercises specially designed for heterogeneous classrooms. Like with all String Basics method books, Book 3 features the popular Interactive Practice Studio and Interactive Teacher Studio, accessible on any Windows or Mac computer. Each student book and Teacher's Edition comes with a DVD containing video lessons and accompaniment Practice Tracks (also provided in the IPS and ITS).
