  • September 17, 2012 Three sharps not a problem

    I'm a violinist and keyboard player. I believe that "absolutely stupid" and grandmother have a phobia of sharps and flats for beginners, but as "pro violinist" declares, this absolutely fails to apply to violin. If you play the same finger pattern on the G string as you do on...

    the A and E strings for the A major scale, there are no sharps or flats and only one if you play that same pattern on the D string. This phobia as applied to the violin is utterly out of place. It's really not that applicable even to the keyboard. There is a school of thought that recommends starting on Gb/F# major so that is phobia never has a chance to form. It can be justifiable argued that this approach is superior to starting in C since it physically corresponds to the pattern of whole and half steps in the major scale while the C major scale fails to physically demonstrate this aural pattern. One can play the C scale without ever noticing where the half steps lie.

  • October 27, 2009 Great Series

    Don't listen to "absolutely stupid," because they clearly don't know what they're talking about. The key containing three sharps is A Major, which is the FIRST KEY that violinists everywhere learn to play in. Guess what? Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, the first piece that Suzuki students learn...

    (many when they are 2 or 3 years old), is in A Major - that's right, THREE SHARPS. F#, C# and G# are all within the most basic fingerings on the A and E strings. I've been using this series with my students for the past couple of years, and I think it is excellent. I find it works particularly well for adult beginners. The lessons are well laid out and easy to understand with the help of a teacher.

  • October 11, 2009 absolutely stupid

    Ok, so my grandma is teaching me the violin, with the help of this book. We both agree on the fact that it is absolutely stupid that the second lesson in this book goes straight to three sharps. My Grandma who has 66 years of experience in playing, and who...

    has played in an orchestra, believes that three sharps should be at least in the second book or at the end of the first book NOT on the SECOND PAGE....

  • September 14, 2009 I like it a lot!

    this book along with the DVD is so good. Considering I never touched a violin before I'm doing pretty well on my own. Has inspired a new interest I'll keep doing. Probably private lessons. Would definitely recommend this and the DVD to new people trying violin.
