First published in 1976,The Sassmannshaus Tradition is one of the most thoroughly researched and thought-through beginner Violin methods in the world.

The author, Egon Sassmannshaus, was one of the most experienced and renowned Violin pedagogues in Germany. For the new English edition his son Kurt Sassmannshaus worked as co-author and adapted his father's successful method for English-speaking children.

Early Start On The Violin (Volume 1) contains 15 lessons with numerous call songs and nursery rhymes. Flash cards for learning notes in first position and their finger placements are also included.

After the introduction featuring open strings and basic note values, the "cuckoo call" follows as a basic interval. Note reading is introduced from the beginning, and accidentals are explained in the easiest way in the first volume. By the end of the first book, many English children’s songs using all fingers have been played and note values from whole to eighth notes have been introduced. Most exercises are underlaid with text so that rhythms can be learned easily and melodies can be perceived as a whole.

Rating Review
Customer Rating Purchased the 1st 4 books in this series. As a complete novice Adult learner, I found this to be the most logical approach I have found (Looked at and purchased 2 others prior to this one)
Whilst the 1st book is very obviously aimed at Children, it takes logical gradual steps in learning and the "Teaching your fingers and hands" to do what they are meant to be doing. Thoroughly recommended. Going though to book 4 where it looks to be getting more intermediate level.

Customer Rating I use this book for my beginner pupils. The way the book presents simple but familiar melodies on all strings motivate my pupils when they can play a really "long song" - in fact it is the same phrase repeated on all strings. Most of them start to read notation gradually, without my having to emphasize that side too much in the lessons. It is good to be able to get them to sing the melody in the lesson so they can internalize what they are going to play. There are no duets in the book or an accompaniment book to go with it (to my knowledge) so sometimes I make up the second line to play along with my pupil.

Customer Rating Very good - recommended by Violin tutor and good layout and inspiring design.

Customer Rating My five year old has just started learning with this book. It takes a really novel approach and we look forward to great success!
