          The backing track is great - although I am a pianist and can play the accompaniments it's easier to keep an eye on a class if I don't have to.
          The pictures in the book definitely seem to be aimed at primary school children, even though the music would be fine for older children.

          Book is excellent and works well with a teaching programme with gradual build up of skills
          Such a shame that the CD tracks do not match up with what it says in the book ( although it is easy enough to work out what they should be). However the count ins are not correct which, to my mind, is a real problem when sending beginners home with this book.
          Surely the publishers could sort this.

          Violin star are brilliantly paced books for young children. Colourful and entertaining with good quality music and great piano accompaniments.
