“It’s truly the Delia Smith of Violin methods… the much-imitated, indispensible original” – James Murphy, Director, Southbank Sinfonia

Book two introduces new keys, finger patterns and the fourth finger, along with different bowing techniques, following on from the first title.
The third book introduces the third and half positions, new major and minor keys, fourth finger extensions and yet more bowing types, including Martelé, Spiccato and Sautillé.
Book four focuses on advanced studies and pieces, and is suitable for students from grades 4-7.
