This extremely simple, big-note method is ideal for young children, and is especially useful for the trail or rental period. Teaching first position notes all four strings, the exercises guide early beginners through their first production of tone. Great emphasis has been placed in this book of sound fundamentals, proper hand positioning, holding of the bow, etc. Designed to be used in introductory lessons, this book contains extensive photographs illustrating proper hand positions. The exercises in the book progress from single-string studies to melodies combining more than one string. Upon completion of this book, the student will be ready to enter into Mel Bay's Violin Method.

    I tried many different methods with my son (he's six)--suzuki, etc. and nothing excited him. He wanted music books like the older kids. This has been great for him. It begins instruction on the E and A strings which are easier for the beginner to play on and...

    he's really improving.

    It's a great book for beginners such as myself who never played a violin. I wanted to learn a new instrument though I play the Organ..notes are not a problem but I wanted to start from the very beginning learning how to hold the violin and bow properly...

    which this book was a great help. It's a great help for those who need to learn to read notes as well. Learning the fingering for first position notes with the extensive illustrations are excellent! In just two weeks since I received the violin as a gift, I see myself already progressing quickly. Thank You!

    This book is easy-to-read, wonderful for a student who has had no prior musical training. Since it is a short book, it is great for a young child to have a sense of accomplishment!
