The Beginner Bass Series series

Recital Music publish music for every level of double bassist and in the past few years have concentrated on music for the younger player. This new and exciting series includes works with simple, accessible technical and musical challenges for beginners and progressing bassists. Piano accompaniments are supportive and written with the bass teacher in mind, creating a new repertoire which is ideal for concert and educational use.

Christopher Field writes: "These six little pieces for beginners, young and not so young, have been designed to help build confidence in the left hand as it moves 'crabwise' across the strings in the first position. I hope that the titles will encourage you to play with imagination."

Christopher Field studied with Juliet Cunningham and Diana Fryer. He began teaching the double bass in 1964 and has written numerous small pieces for teaching purposes some of which have, over the years, appeared in the graded syllabuses of the major examination boards. Primarily a singer, he has also transcribed arias and songs for double bass and piano.
