Easy and well tuned
Love this! with some experience in playing the violin you will get an easy intro to Gypsy music, and with the CD it will take you only a short while before you perform on stage yourself. :)

My 12yr son has been taking private lessons once a week for 1 yr and now in 6th grade orchestra for 4 months. He is able to play the songs yet still very challenged. He is learning new scales with this book. The first song uses an A minor scale....
