Double Bass Solo Techniques

A book of orchestral excerpts

Double Bass Solo Techniques combines the dual function of a technique book and a collection or orchestral excerpts. The techniques are introduced in a logical order, and each is accompanied by a short explanatory note, providing technical advice and tips on performance. The repertoire has been carefully selected to showcase the techniques in their real musical context, and the pieces cover all major styles and genres. Ideal as preparation for auditions and exams, the book is suitable for students of grades 6-8+.
