Original German title: Fruher Anfang auf der Bratsche - Band 1; Eine Bratschenschule fur Kinder ab 4 Jahren. Note reading is introduced from the beginning, and accidentals are explained in the easiest way in the first volume. By the end of the first book, many English children's songs using all fingers have been played and note values from more...whole to eighth notes have been introduced. Even the easiest exercises are underlaid with text so that melodies can be perceived as a whole.

Includes pull-out sheet with flashcards that can be cut out.
