    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...

    . The music is just beautiful and so pretty. Very unique. He is happy I got him this book.

    Beginner level still challenging with fun collection of songs. CD very helpful, showing how song supposed to be played as well as providing a slower version of song.
