It is the holidays right now and I can't find a viola teacher so is there any good viola method books to keep me busy and sharp through out Christmas.

Hi FreeSeraph,

Music wise, you could try depending on where you are at,

"A New Tune a Day (Performance pieces for Viola), 2006, Boston Music.com."

Compiled and arranged by Ned. Bennett. Musicroom.com if not from here!

Book,
"The Violin and Viola.
(History, structure, Techniques.).
Sheila M. Nelson. 2003, Dover Publications Inc. Mineola, New York.

I am an amateur needless to say but keen to move forward in playing this instrument well eventually!

Kind regards,

Colin2000.

I'm still a beginner, so I don't have much to compare it to, but I like the Essential Elements/ Techniques series for self study, they go step by step, with bits of trivia that most musically inclined people would already know, but those who have been away from music for a while have already forgotten they knew it in the first place. Here's a link to the first in the series, not sure how far along you are, or even if you still need it.
