Listen To Me! book 1 is a collection of pieces for the beginner violinist but with a difference!
The book contains 17 repertoire pieces for the total novice, which when accompanied by original and appealing Piano parts, sound as a whole very engaging and worthy of being 'listened to'. The aim of the book is to provide a platform for beginner violinists in order to help develop confidence in their playing.
Book 1 contains repertoire for open strings, 1st finger and 2nd finger in 1st position (book 2 adds fingers 3 and 4, still in first position).

"I immediately noticed a systematic sequence of straight addition of the technical elements. I hope that your contribution to the Violin elemental methodology will find a place among the greatest number of beginners, since this type of literature is still insufficiently represented"

"Your pieces are delightful. They are imaginative, and the Piano accompaniments are clever without being distractingly challenging to the teacher. Your wonderful pieces make a happy and effective contribution to beginning Violin literature
