Double Bass students who have been playing for a few years may begin to tackle more advanced repertory. Here are some ideas for music that may be helpful when working through these transition years.

Left: This collection of five short movements for Unaccompanied Bass has been rated with a Difficulty level of 7 - 8, Advanced, and uses the entire register of the instrument..

To the left: This piece presents a great way begin to learn the higher register of the bass. The bass part begins in the lower register and then is repeated (optionally), once the student knows the melody, an octave higher.

Above: The one movement "Concertino" Double Bass and String Orchestra, rated with a Difficulty level of 7 - 8, Advanced, often finds the bassist playing in the very highest reaches of the fingerboard. Not for the meek of heart.
