These 11 duets are new and original compositions by Dave McKeown, a fully qualified and highly experienced woodwind teacher and performer. They are a little easier than the 10 Jazzy Duets title in the same series. If you play grade 3 standard and upwards you will really enjoy these pieces. They are in a variety of styles from rock to gospel to swing, and each duet sets a new challenge. The brief sample recording is of three duets from the collection played on Clarinet, Flute and Saxophone

11 Easy Jazzy Duets for Violin and Viola are

  • fully compatible with the other String volumes in the series…great for mixed ensembles.
  • fully articulated to help develop that sense of jazz style.
  • great for helping with jazz rhythms.
  • road tested with scores of students.
  • fun to play.
  • great as stand alone pieces without the second part.
