Kathy Blackwell/David Blackwell: Fiddle Time Starters (Updated Edition)

Books and CDs | Violin

Catalogue No: 9780193365841
Series: String Time
Format: Books | Instrumental Tutor
Building on the success of the Fiddle Time series, Fiddle Time Starters provides the best possible foundation for the budding string player. Carefully paced to suit young learners, the book supports players through the important early stages, step by step-from how to hold your instrument and bow, through basic notation, to pieces using the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd fingers. Packed with quizzes, games, and songs, as well as colour illustrations to demonstrate each stage, Fiddle Time Starters also includes a CD of performances and backing tracks to encourage and enhance progress throughout.

The Starters books provide a thorough pedagogical approach that supports the early years of learning up until the end of Joggers, and the Starters and Joggers books work well when used in conjunction. The original publication Fiddle Time Starters will no longer be available.

          A much better book than the original Starters. I think it's goign to replace "Superstart" for me. I've used it for 2 pupils already, and just trying it on 7 more. You can never tell until you try them. I like the help it gives with bow hold, which "Superstart" doesn't.

          This book is colourful and straightforward and comes with a CD with funky rock/jazz-esque rhythms to learn good pulse. Great for young kids, probably quite patronising for older children. Would advise buying the teachers handbook to understand each activity fully. Musicroom service was as efficient as always, next day delivery
