    This fascinating series of tutor books is closely based on the Suzuki Violin Method. The teaching material in volumes 1 a and 1 b roughly mirrors the content of the first Suzuki book, with preparatory exercises for learning the tunes. I liked the useful advice for teachers and parents, such...

    as the ten most important steps when learning a new piece, the tips on practising with a sample practice plan and the descriptions of some effective technical exercises, which all looked great fun. Parents are involved right from the start, with clear instructions on how they should take part in the learning process. The quality of the CD performances is good, with some interesting sound effects and drum rhythms that are sure to engage younger players. Children aged five and upwards will enjoy playing this material and many teachers will be interested in this exposition of the Suzuki principles.
