  • August 28, 2009 Progresses logically

    I have used this book with a few students and the way it covers material appeals to the way they learn. It doesn't jump around to all the different strings but focuses on one at a time until familiarity is built.

  • July 06, 2009 Best Violin Method Series

    I really enjoy teaching out of these books and my students love them too! I have been looking for other books and have not found any better ones! I like how frost uses the fingerboard tape and keys of D- I could not find many others that did this! I...

    would like it better if two things were changed. I also would like bigger print and more song variety. I have counted french folk song 6 times in one book and it does get a little boring. But it is the best series around!

  • May 22, 2008 Best Method Book, hands down

    I am a violin teacher full time, I own every method book imaginable, and this one is the best by far. Easy to understand, great mix of songs and etude-like tunes, but by far the top reason I use it year after year is because of the order and...

    pacing which it introduces concepts. My only gripe: why isn't the font BIGGER!! All of the other method book have updated their font (and even include CDs now, most notably Essential Elements, which is the ONLY good part about that method as far as I'm concerned. If only the font were bigger, it would make my day, and be easier on the eyes of my students.

  • February 06, 2008 A solid system

    Argh, just because this book does not match the Suzuki book particularly well does not make it a bad system for learning the rudiments of violin- there are all sorts of valid ways to learn to play violin. That being said, I like teaching out of this book (private lessons...

    ). It can be used with all age groups and progresses nicely. Techniques are learned in an order that makes finding supplemental pieces to assign easy. My personal favorite beginning violin book is the Rolland based Young Strings in Action, which unfortunately is $15 now, making this book a viable alternative.
