Beginning and young bass students, once they have learned how to hold the bass and the bow, can learn to play this easily accessible tuneful music composed or arranged for double bass solo or bass with piano accompaniment. With these bass parts the students will cover the lowest range of the double bass as well as some of the easier harmonics that can be played on bass; the pieces are written so as to not be difficult for first year students, and there are also downloadable exercises to lay a foundation for sight-reading.
