Today is MLK Day...

Today is a federal holiday celebrating the life and achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the United States. All US Post Offices are closed today in recognition of this holiday, so orders processed and "shipped" in our system today will be packed and labeled, but will not actually be physically shipped until tomorrow. UPS is still operating today, so larger items that go by UPS will ship as normal.

Perfect for a player who is looking to step up their orchestral game, this three pack of instruction includes the popular 'Enjoy the Double Bass' books (vol. 1 and 2), as well as Simandl studies with included CDs with play-along accompaniment. It rounds out with an excellent collection of solo pieces and orchestral passages specifically for bass auditions. It's an excellent collection of study and audition tools for the developing orchestral bassist! These books are also available separately, but buying them together as a package saves you some money. Below is some information about what you get in this great 3-pack.

Enjoy the Double Bass, Vol 1 & 2

Double Bass Method with Piano Accompaniment Book/CD

This method for learning upright bass has some similarities to the well-known Simandl exercises, but has some guidance for self-learners (the Simandl book has exercises only.) This book, unlike our popular "Essential Elements" set, assumes that you already know the basics of reading music. If you're taking your bass studies seriously, and want to learn proper technique (including arco) this set of two comprehensive books with CDs could be your ticket.

The first book covers half position up to 2.5 position; the second picks up where the first left off and takes you up to fifth position. Both books are chock full of illustrations and photos. Book one is 120 pages, while book two is 92 pages - so this is no thin "elementary method" book - you'll get a lot of time and use out of this set!

Each of the two books also includes a CD which contains performances, piano accompaniments, and printable PDF scores for many of the exercises in the book.

Franz Simandl - 30 Etudes

Includes 4 Accompaniment CDs

The "Simandl Method" is a very common and well-respected methodology for developing your skills on the instrument, and the full method book features Etudes (which are short compositions for solo instrument, intended as exercises) as part of the program.

These etudes can be some of the most important pieces any double bassist will use in their study of the instrument. The etudes cover the technical growth necessary for mastery of the double bass, covering all aspects of performance technique, including: attack, bowing, mordents and trills, intonation, dexterity, legato/marcato, leaps, syncopation, cantilena playing, and more. They present a consistently challenging progression of material, while being full of musical interest.

However, even with "musical interest," practicing the etudes alone in a practice room can be repetitive and dull. This book includes CDs with full piano accompaniment for your learning and practice pleasure. Additionally, each etude is also performed on the included CD's by bassist Andrew Kohn (former principal bassist of the Harrisburg Symphony and National Chamber Orchestra) so you can hear another player's interpretation and reference it in your studies.

Test Pieces for Orchestral Auditions Book

Excerpts from the Operatic and Concert Repertoire

This is a wonderful collection of orchestral audition pieces, perfectly suited for students and classical players, whether you are auditioning for college, a select orchestra, or your local community orchestra.

It features common audition passages from traditional pieces, as well as solo excerpts, for a complete approach - since (as stated in the preface) "an orchestral musican is expected to know and to have mastered not only the solo literature of his instrument but especially the opera and concert repertoire as well."

Since it covers both (solo and ensemble) aspects so well, this book can also serve as an excellent practice tool for musical training, as well - a convenient single book focusing on intricate and difficult passages and solos from popular orchestral arrangements. An excellent reference book to have in your collection! 62 pages.
