Part of the Learning Together Series, Learning Together for Bassconsists of a sequential unison repertoire for string instruments of the orchestra and is most applicable in string classes, group ensembles, and private lesson settings. Harmony parts and bass lines complete the arrangements and are composed so that any mixed string ensemble, even ensembles that all feature upright bass, can perform the pieces included in each of the Learning Together series.
Piano accompaniments are included and can be added to any of these combinations. Performance possibilities include individual solo or unison groups, class ensembles, and district or festival-sized orchestras.
The Summy Birchard Learning Together for Bass, and others in the series can be used to establish solo technique, introduce ensemble skills, develop aural skills, and can serve as a foundation for learning to read music. Each instrument book comes with a CD that includes solo performances, string ensemble performances, and piano accompaniment tracks of the featured repertoire.
