The Book Store

Welcome to the

UrbanStrings Book Store

Since 1997

Below are books that I recommend to those who are violin students or teachers as well as parents and patrons of urban string musicians.

They fall into the following categories:

Basic Repertoire

These books I recommend to all my beginning students. Also, see my “Checklist for the first lesson”.

Intermediate and Advanced Repertoire

An Excellent Intermediate to Advanced Collection for Violin.

The Fritz Kriesler Collection
by Fritz Kriesler
Paperback (June 1990)
Carl Fischer Music Dist; ISBN: 0825804078

An Excellent Intermediate to Advanced Collection for Violin. This collection was first introduced to me through my violin teacher, the late Adreinne Krasner (wife of Louis Krasner who debued the Berg Violin Concerto). Since that time I have returned again, and again to it with my own students. My favorite is the Preludium and Allegro but the Sicilienne and Rigadoun are very popular as well.
