Solos for Young Violists is a five-volume series of music books with companion compact discs featuring 34 works for viola and piano.

The collection has become a valuable resource for teachers and students of all ages. The piano track recorded on the second half of each CD gives the violist the opportunity to practice with accompaniments. This title is available in Music Prodigy.
