Pizzicato Performance Collection for Beginning Orchestra Released by Wingert-Jones Publications

Posted in

Lakeland, Florida (July 20, 2022) – Wingert-Jones Publications’ newest release, Pizzicato Performance Collection, Fifteen Pizzicato Works for the Beginning String Orchestra, is a collection of original pizzicato works by popular composer, Doug Spata.  

A supplementary resource for the beginning string orchestra, Pizzicato Performance Collection starts with only the open strings and progressively increases in difficulty, so it can be used as a reinforcement tool at all stages of a beginner’s advancement.  

“The best way to get students excited about their instrument is to give them fun, engaging music designed for their ability level,” commented composer Doug Spata. “Beginning players will love showing off their new skills with these full-length pieces in a variety of pop, Latin and classical styles.”

Free, downloadable play-along tracks are included with Pizzicato Performance Collection, and the piano and drum set parts come included in the teacher edition for live-performance opportunities.  This collection offers beginning students the opportunity to play authentic pieces before they learn how to use a bow.

Pizzicato Performance Collection Student books for Violin, Viola, Cello and Bass ($7.99) and Teacher Books ($29.99) are available from music retailers and from Wingert-Jones Publications.

About Wingert-Jones Publications:  Founded in 1964, Wingert-Jones Publications started as a labor of love between two instrument salesmen with a passion for grand, high-end band music. Merrill Jones started small, attending the 1964 National Band Clinic with just one piece: Emperata Overture by Claude T. Smith. Wingert-Jones has grown into a nationally known publisher and has expanded its library to include orchestral and educational works. The Achievement and Early Achievement music series are among the most popular hands-on music learning collections in the U.S.
