Eta Cohen's world famous Violin method broke new ground when it was first released. Providing an incremental approach to learning the instrument, it only introducing one concept at a time and reinforced each new concept with an accompanying exercise and highly enjoyable pieces. The careful organisation of the method meant that it was a great equaliser because any child could make good progress almost irrespective of talent. It was also based upon the principal that playing well brings intense satisfaction, whereas playing badly only results in frustration.

The Eta Cohen Violin Method has produced music professionals who, today, occupy many prominent positions in the music profession, including renowned soloists, chamber musicians, orchestral performers (including several orchestral leaders) and teachers.

This sixth edition has been completely revised and updated to make Eta's method available to yet another generation of aspiring violinists. It includes a beautifully recorded CD containing demonstration tracks of all the pieces.

Book 4 is suitable for students from grades 4-7 and includes studies and pieces introducing the 2nd, 4th and 5th positions as well as trills, double stopping, chords, spiccato and sautillé bowings.

          Lovely, tuneful pieces alongside interesting exercises which sound very professional alongside the piano accompaniment. Excellent for Grade 4 moving to Grade 5 ABRSM for both children and adults.
