Trying to make violin interesting for the teenage boys is tricky, so in order to balance up the new violin AMEB Technique Book boring stuff (it is absolutely boring!!) and the exam pieces (more interesting – we get to choose those!!), I have stumbled across this: http://www.mariopiano.com/mario-sheet-music-overworld-main-theme.html for piano.
I have adapted it as a violin duet which you can find here: Super Mario Brothers Overworld Main Theme
It has been received with smiles from my students so far. Always a good thing.
