Pam Wedgwood's After Hours for Violin and Piano presents eight atmospheric, original pieces for the intermediate violinist with piano accompaniment. They are ideal for teacher or pupil and provide a perfect follow-on for those that have used and enjoyed Pam's highly acclaimed Jazzin' About series.

The book contains piano accompaniments, but for extra sophistication a CD of backing tracks is also included. Each piece within the collection has two different backing tracks: the first (full performance) includes the backing track along with the instrumental melody; the second (backing only) presents the backing track alone. The full performance track is provided to help the player to the learn the melody and its interaction with the accompaniment; the melody is played on a marimba to avoid dominating the acoustic `live' instrument for those players who choose to play along with this version of the backing.

**ABRSM selected piece (Violin 2012-2015): Falling (Wedgwood)
