Does anyone know of a website that has some great violin sheet music that is fairly easy?

Asked by leopardgecko123 (761 points ) August 4th, 2011

I’ve been playing violin for about two years and practice every day now. So, I get bored with my weekly song assignments and look around on the internet for some other pieces to play around with and challenge myself at. So far I’ve only found Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, Greensleeves, and, although it is way to advanced for me right now, The Schindler’s List (saving it for later). I love playing fiddle tunes, bluegrass, movie scores, and modern songs. I’m trying to find ‘Fireworks’ from Harry Potter and The Kingdom Dance from Disney’s Tangled. Unfortunately, these are really hard to find on violin. Everything these days is for piano. Does anybody know of a website that has a lot of good violin songs? Maybe Fireworks and The Kingdom Dance, too?

Can I recommend you a book instead of a website? It’s really hard to find sheet music for ANY instrument online.

I play oboe and I bought a book through the company “music minus one” for oboe and I love it. They’re available for violin too.

What it is is a book of sheet music for song for violin, but it also comes with a CD of a piano playing an accompanying part. You can play your violin along with the CD; it’s great fun! The music itself is simple if you buy a lower level book (they come in different skill levels), beautiful, and fun to play.
