Does anyone know of published music for Piano and Viola that is fairly simple for the Viola (Second year Viola student?)

Thanks in advance.

check the SheerPiano website duet section. there's Jazz/blues on the Red & Purple books and more classical/contemporary on the Blue. If that's what you are looking for we can definitely make for you the Viola duet fairly quick.

I truly think nothing can be easy on the viola, I think it's quite an impossoble instrument..

Plenty of stuff out there for Viola with Piano accompaniment.

Not sure what "2nd year" student means - you could be quite accomplished in that time - or could have progressed very little depending on all the usual variables.

I'm not sure I can remember what I played back that many years ago - but there are lots of pieces transcribed for Viola from original Violin of Cello music. Bach Cello suites for example was always popular (but may be a little too tricky depending on your skill level).

Try looking at ABRSM or AMEB syllabuses for whatever grade you're at if you're really short of ideas - they'll have a whole lot of pieces listed and pretty much all of them will have an acompaniment on Piano.
