Easy string music by Kathy & Hugh Colledge. 26 pieces following on from Waggon Wheels. 0-12-3-4 and 0-1-2-34 finger patterns. New rhythms and compound time are introduced, along with a wider range of expression marks and some varied bowing.
Husband and wife team Kathy (b.1952) and Hugh (b.1945) Colledge both worked as instrumental music teachers in East London before moving to Norfolk in 1995. Their compositions and arrangements are a joint effort, with Kathy being the string specialist and Hugh writing the piano accompaniments.
"...this set of pieces should encourage young players to perform cheerful, simple solos."

"The editors have adopted a ‘slowly but surely’ approach and by gradually introducing new ideas with several examples to clearly illustrate each point, the student has the opportunity to consolidate newly acquired skills and build up a firm foundation for the years of music making ahead."
