Philip Sparke's Skilful Solos is the second volume of a progressive series of books that leads the young string player from beginner to accomplished musician. Following on from the first book in the series Starter Solos this collection generally contains longer pieces suitable for the young musician. Specifically tailored for each instrument, Skilful Solos introduces the concept of phrasing by suggesting suitable breathing points and takes the player into new keys with extended instrumental ranges, new notes being introduced in a gradual and logical manner. Skilful Solos comes with a play-along CD. The advantages of playing either with piano or CD accompaniment are that the beginning player can now experience the important aspects of playing with others from their earliest lessons, thus developing the essential skills of listening while they play and maintaining strict tempo, which is not always achieved when playing alone.

This album includes pieces on the ABRSM Bowed Strings Syllabus 2020-2023.

Pony and Trap by Phillip Sparke is from this album and is on List C of the Grade 2 Viola.

Could You Repeat That? by Phillip Sparke is from this album and is on List C of the Grade 3 Viola.
