You may have to use Safari to open the links below but I've created a presentation to help you learn the notes of the alto clef.
Notes on the D-string
Notes on the A-string
Investigate the sound of the viola below
- Bach, Suite in G Major, Prelude, as performed by Lillian Fuchs on viola
- Bartok Viola Concerto, as performed by Tabea Zimmerman and Berlin Philharmonic (partial)
- Nuage, as performed by Stephane Grappelli- although a violin, no string player should be unfamiliar with this pioneer.
- Bach, Concerto for 2 violins (???), slightly jazzed up- Taro Hakase & Iwao Furusawa, violins
- Hungarian Dance (Czardas), Vittorio Monti, as performed by 10 yr. old Akim Camara
