    I love the book for my beginning student. While some songs are still too difficult, they build confidence and interest in practicing.

    When you take your violin out of it's case for the first's a little scary. It's even scarier when you try to play it! It was a comfort to have this nice, easy-to-understand beginner's book to help out. The piano accompaniment is...

    very nice and helpful, and a nice variety of songs. I recommend this one!
