All of them include score and 3 violin parts:

- Violin 2: for extra harmony with a technical trick: left hand pizz., harmonics, chords, string crossing, etc.
- Violin 3: simple open strings accompaniment to play and/or sing along.
- Extra part: tune in simplified notation, lyrics and tonic sol-fa for singing and musicianship activities.
