You will need a lot of music to keep your progressing student interested, motivated, and happy. Below are some of our favorites that we are adding to all the time. Please contact me below with some of your music favorites and I will add them to our 'Best Violin Music' list, after I take them for a test drive of course.

Best Violin Music to Download
In the fast paced world we live in, who wouldn't love to be able to get the violin music you need right from home or from the office before you rush to pick your kids up from school?
There are many online sheet music stores to choose from. Some of them are free, and some of them cost money (usually at a discounted price). Here are two of my favorite for finding intermediate level music.
8notes.com is an excellent resource for FREE violin sheet music! They have over 90 intermediate level pieces. Almost all of the intermediate pieces you'll find on this site are strictly classical pieces from popular composers like Bach, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, and Schubert. You will rarely find a sheet music site that has more then just the classics for free because the composers are still alive and want to collect revenue from their compositions. This site is very easy to navigate, find music, and then print it.
Looking for more than just classical? Virtual Sheet Music offers a wide variety of music in the intermediate level. The music is cheaper then buying or ordering a hard copy, and you can print it off right now! Plus they offer a great deal for a year membership. You pay once for the whole year and enjoy all of the Free music you could ever want.
They also have Free Sheet Music that they switch up every two weeks. You could build an awesome musical library just by downloading these freebies. Check them out by clicking on the link above.
