1. Christmas Kaleidoscope Books 1 & 2 for Strings

We love, love, love this series for string players! You can play the “A” line as a solo or grab a group of friends and play the other lines to make a full string ensemble. Book 1 is good for beginners. If your child has been playing for a couple of years, they will find Book 2 to be more at their level.
