The Viola First Steps collection, is divided into four volumes and is aimed at young violists who want to start learning the instrument together with musical language and theory. Each book is divided into different teaching sections, every one containing the musical language necessary for exercises and works. Alongside the exercises, this volume contains popular songs, pieces from classical authors in different periods and cultural context - consisting of quotations, anecdotes relating to the Viola and information on the origin of the instrument, composers and curiosities . Beside technique and theory, this book will help violists to develop their rhythm skills,prepare for auditions and more.
The MP3 CD is fundamental to the method and will help students to achieve the objectives in each section. Each song is recorded in three different ways. The first track is the complete song accompanied by another instrument with a slow tempo. The second track is the same piece with its real tempo. The third track is only the accompaniment so that the student can play along. Francisco Serra studied Viola and Chamber music at the Conservatory of "Oscar Esplá" in Alicante, Spain. Since 2003 he has been an official professor at the Conservatory of Music of Villena (Alicante).
