        Great compilation of pop songs to get the young player excited about trying out new tunes on the violin. Not too difficult with mainly first position playing. Great way to practise sight-reading. Presentation is nice.
        There is no piano accompaniment score which is ideal for concerts and auditions.
        Play-a-along CD does not have a recording of a violinist demonstrating the parts.
        CD accompaniment arrangement is not great, sounding very digital.

        This is yet another Hal Leonard publication which promises much,-14 fairly up to date pop tunes all in first position in reasonably easy keys and rhythms( grade 2-3)BUT greatly let down by the appallingly unmusical door bell sound melody cue. For some reason they do not supply an uncued backing track so you are supposed to turn down the right channel to remove the cue. This causes the overall volume to drop and on this cd doesn't actually remove all the cue sound. I've used quite a few of these books before but this has been the worst so far so I emailed Hal Leonard to complain and they tell me they are stopping this type of backing track in the near future. Be warned though there are still a few yet to come. So my advice is, don't buy from this series until they sort out these backing tracks- they really are awful!
