Suzuki Ensembles for Guitar Volume 1
The purpose of these arrangements is to provide a variety of interesting and challenging material for Suzuki guitar students who are beyond Book 1 and are playing in a Suzuki guitar group class. The arrangements allow students, who may be widely divergent in playing levels, the opportunity to perform together in the Book 1 repertoire. These arrangements include the original melodies transposed one octave higher, giving the student practice in reading ledger lines and playing beyond the 12th fret, a obbligato melody that poses technical challenges to advanced students, a simple chordal accompaniment that gives the Book 2 student excellent free stroke arpeggio practice, and a bass part that gives the student practice in reading the lower ledger lines. These parts work well together, but can also be used with the original melodies.
