Volumes 3-10 are in the works, as are volumes for viola, cello, double bass and string orchestra.

The O'Connor Violin Method employs classic violin technique and theory to teach students to become skilled violinists. But more than that, the O'Connor Violin Method uses familiar traditional American music to engage and motivate the young student. The lavishly illustrated books focus on well known traditional American tunes such as Oh! Susanna, Amazing Grace, Appalachia Waltz and Soldier's Joy. The method seeks to instill a deep appreciation of America's musical history with background stories of all those that contributed to this rich heritage: Immigrants, African-American slaves, soldiers - all of whom together created what has become the new American Classical Music. A unique feature of this method is that through the progressive development of initially simple works, O'Connor demonstrates that there is more than one way to play a piece, adding an 'improvisational' twist not found in other methods. The goal of the O'Connor method is that young people everywhere will fall in love with playing music. Currently volumes 1 and 2 of this 10 volume series are available. Included with each volume are CDs with Mark O'Connor playing all the tunes, plus piano accompaniment tracks.

"I am pleased to introduce the O'Connor Violin Method for string teachers and students of the violin. This 10-book series is designed to guide the student gradually through the development of pedagogical and musical techniques necessary to become a proficient, well-rounded musician through a carefully planned succession of pieces. Gradual development of left-hand technique, bowing skill and ear training as revealed through the study of beautiful music encourages a love of music-making in a slow, steady and natural way."

O'Connor Violin Method - Book 3 - Piano Accompaniment Part

Item# MO103P

$14.95

In Stock

The vision of Book III is grounded in lessons presented in a format similar to that used in Books I & II of the Method representing the American Music system” and its 400-year history. From additional Boil ‘em Cabbage Down” variations introducing 2nd and 3rd positions and an arrangement of this classic tune including a second part, through four centuries of American musical history to the most recent pieces that I have composed and arranged, Book III offers a broad and interconnecting compendium of American music.

Continuing the theme that the American Music System includes the music of our immediate neighbors to the South and North, the well-known Mexican tunes Over the Waves” and Jessie Polka” as well as the popular Canadian tune Rippling Water Jig” are featured.  Other foundational music included are my arrangements of the soulful spiritual Deep River” and perhaps the greatest melody from the pen of Stephen Foster, Old Folks at Home.”

Also included is another Spiritual, widely popular during the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s - We Shall Overcome” - and an arrangement of the Jewish song Hava Nagila” which was popular all over America when I was a child and presents a great opportunity for instructing the augmented second interval. I have added one of my own works to the Blues progression, a favorite from my Hot Swing Band: In the Cluster Blues”, which reveals how 6/8 rhythm can be used to understand and experience the feeling of the shuffle” created by the African style of 6 beats over 2 beats. Perhaps the best-known Ragtime composer, Scott Joplin, is represented here in my arrangement of The Entertainer” which calls the student to learn to shift to 2nd position.

In the Texas Style fiddle tradition, I introduce advancement in technique, style and creativity with the theme and variations of Rubber Dolly Rag,” the rapid arpeggiation in Herman’s Hornpipe” and the demands of 3rd position in Grey Eagle.”  I am also able to introduce students to their first fully formed jazz pieces with my arrangements of Lazy River” by the great American songwriter Hoagy Carmichael, and present Simple Gifts” - perhaps one of the signature American melodies most associated with American Classical music through the symphonic work of Aaron Copland.
