I'm a high school violinist, and love playing the violin, but the pieces they give us at school just aren't enough. I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for songs to play? So you know my approximate level, the songs I'm currently working on are Vivaldi's violin concerto in A-minor, Liberty Bell march, William Tell Overture, and Serenade for Strings. I'd really appreciate any responses I could get. Also good are sites where a lot of good, free violin sheet music is offered, as these seem to be few and far between :)

You want a REAL challenge?
Try Perseus by Soon Hee Newbold, Violin 1 on pages 17-20 on http://www.seoulforeign.org...
(including those pages). It's a grade level 5 piece, insanely hard to play along with (7th position!), and nearly impossible to sight-read decently, even for a super advanced orchestra.
If you still aren't convinced just listen to the song, listed below.
Unfortunately it's only good with the other parts, so here:

I love Soon Hee Newbold!! i'm actually currently playing her pieces "Fire Dance" and "Orion and the Scorpion". I love Perseus as well. Our chamber school orchestra actually attempted it a couple years ago, and the first violins loved it, but as I'm sure you can guess, the audience wasn't quite as thrilled as we were that we had a piece that involved 7th and 8th graders attempting to shift into 7th position :). Anyway, it would be lot of fun to try to play the piece again without scaring away the audience! Do you know where I can get the score for the first violins only? The score for the orchestra costs like $55.00. Thanks!!

Well, if you want a challenge but not too ridiculous, may I recommend the Franck Sonata for violin. Especially the 2nd movement.

If you want a challenge, try Paganini. They called him the devil on the violin. I put a video of some of his best music.
Don't let this site's demise affect you:

- Make an account on eDeb8

- Contact any friends on here you'd like to stay in contact with
- Download any debates you'd like archived (go here: http://webpagetopdf.com...)
- Download as many mafia games as you can to preserve stats and history
