    This DVD as well as Fischers two boooks are some of the most informative violin learning material you can find. Even as a beginning student there is something to be learned and if you have these books and this dvd from your first lessons they will carry you through many...

    years of practice and study. The dvd as well as the books are a bit pricey but they are definitely worth the investment . However I will add that they are probably more than a very young student can absorb and put into practice but for the mature student who can read and self motivate along with the help of their teacher these books will be useful. Also, as always the service from Sheetmusic Plus is great.
