Violin Theory for Beginners is the result of many years of effort to teach music theory effectively in relation to the violin. Each lesson has been thoroughly tested, with students of all levels of ability, in an effort to determine the correct approach and the essential amount of repetition. The use of a blackboard cannot be too strongly stressed to insure complete understanding and to prevent mistakes in the written exercises at the end of each lesson. The teacher will need to determine how many exercises each child needs; however, the author uses all of them. This book (followed by Book Two) is not intended to be an exclusive discourse; rather, it is meant to serve as a basis for the individuality and the ingenuity of the teacher.
