Please scroll down to see the full range of folk viola sheet music. This includes solo/session viola, new compositions for viola, and duets for two violas, violin and viola, and viola and cello.
Solo Viola / Session Viola
Traditional tunes for viola
Sets of 40 tunes arranged for playing solo or joining in with violinists in sessions
Viola Duets - Traditional Tunes
One viola plays the original folk melodies transposed down by a fifth, and there is a newly composed harmony part for the second viola.
Violin and Viola Duets - Traditional Tunes
The violin plays the original folk melodies, with a newly composed harmony part for the viola.
Viola and Cello Duets - Traditional Tunes
The viola plays the melody and the cello plays a bassline / harmony part.
Viola and Piano Duets - New Compositions
Viola and piano arrangements of some of my original compositions. There is also an optional extra part for a violin or second viola. You can listen to these pieces here.
If you have violinist friends who might be interested in playing my traditional tune duet arrangements but sadly do not have access to a viola player[!], I have also made a transposed version of my viola duets which is suitable for two violins: see my fiddle duets sheet music page on my other website.
Trios and Quartets
I have written one piece for viola trio, which has an optional drone part for a fourth viola. You can see a video of this piece here.
Most of my sheet music for trios, quartets and other larger groups has its own website at folkarrangements.co.uk. These arrangements are flexible and can be used by many different combinations of instruments, including up to three violas.
