Difficulty level medium? MEDIUM? It is supposed to be off the chart in terms of difficulty!

Seriously hard stuff
This book is full of super challenging stuff that will keep you frustrated for a long, long time! Lots of training for double-stopping, tuning and harmonics, so technically a world-beater. If you like challenges, this is definitely your kinda book; even my teacher fears them! Loads of practice means really good show pieces. Start with Caprice 20 to get you warmed up, most of the others are hard nuts! I've been playing violin for over 6 years now but these can still seem challenging! Great for keeping up technical ability and the fingerings, if you follow them logically, are generally very useful, but be prepared for some finger stretching, cos Paganini had some LONG fingers (there are alternatives too)!

I love these pieces, they are amazing. Tricky for sure but slow practice, note by note a al menuhin. I recently played all these caprices at a concert at my school which was split up over three days. I'm 15 and it's really great to acomplish these pieces. Personal favourite, 1 and 24
