about

The Kachemak Quartets were composed as a companion pack for the beginner pieces, 'Kachemak Preludes' .
(georgianettleton.bandcamp.com/album/kachemak-preludes-easy-harmony-sheet-music-for-beginner-violins-strings)

Using the same musical material, the simple melodies from the Preludes are extended into five short string quartet pieces. The idea behind this was to show beginner musicians that they are part of a broad learning curve, and also to teach listening skills - beginners learning the Preludes can listen out for familiar melodies in the Quartets.

Another aspect of these two companion packs was the idea that a mixed ability community strings concert could be possible - interspersing the beginner group pieces with the corresponding quartet pieces. The beginner group could therefore feel part of something bigger, and hopefully be inspired by the more advanced players playing music related to what they were learning themselves.

The Kachemak Quartets also work as standalone pieces without reference to the Kachemak Preludes. The titles and music are inspired by the local area and nature of Homer, Alaska. Many thanks to Linda Reinhart for commissioning both the Quartets and Preludes.


WHAT YOU GET WITH THIS DOWNLOAD
---------------------------------------------------------

*pdf scores for 5 pieces for string quartet. These are presented in full score format, and also individual parts for each instrument.
*midi files for each piece
*demonstration recordings in your choice of audio format (you can select between mp3, flac and various other formats when you download the package)

---------------------------------------------------------

IMPORTANT! Please note: -

1. Unlike my other sheet music, this pack does NOT come with the "practise mixes" - although if you need these, drop me a line and I can get these to you.

2. These pieces are for STRING QUARTET ONLY - you will only receive scores for two violins, viola and cello (as opposed to most of my other music, which is transposed for a variety of different instruments)

---------------------------------------------------------

I have lots more string arrangements and compositions, mostly of a celtic nature, on my website:
