Well! We were surprised to see the audio player was no longer working when we visited the Violin solo page! So it took a while to pick a new audio player, but we think we have one that should work in almost any browser!
We are sorry the sound files blanked out and hope it is not a problem to any of you! Give things another try and hopefully you will not be disappointed!
The page is: Classic Violin Hymn Arrangements
Also a note! My mother used to have beginning students just do the first verse of her arrangements. Then intermediate students would work on adding the second verse and advanced students would add the third verse. So don’t think that just because you cannot play through the whole arrangement you can’t use it! A lot of students never get past the easiest first verses!
Also she had certain pieces to begin with and other pieces once things were going better. There is a whole range of hymns to check into.
If the student feels the one verse is too short, then she would have them play through it twice.
She always believed that less was more. So, going through a hymn twice was more than most will politely sit through, unless things were building and becoming more interesting. Many students fail to hold the interest of an audience when they try to play too long and too much, until they become very skillful.
