Sheila Nelson: Tetratunes For Violin

Books | Violin

Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes
Composer: Sheila M. Nelson
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

A collection of very short tunes written by Sheila Nelson. Initially notated with numbers (fingering) rather than notes and then later written in staves.

Tetratunes allows young players to learn note reading in blocks of four step-wise notes on each string. This system develops physical skills slightly ahead of note-reading.

          I find this THE most helpful beginners book. Firstly it is half the price of many first books, it is small so it fits easily into the violin case (less likely to get forgotten or lost) and it does not start with lots of theory and note reading which can put people off. It has lots of popular tunes (The Grand Old Duke Of York; Old Macdonald; Twinkle Twinkle Little Star) and simple and harder versions of the same tunes which are ideal for use with mixed ability groups. It does not get carried away in its own trendiness by using lots of needless drawings and logos which just take up room and do not really say anything (like the revamped version of Abracadabra for example).<br><br>I use it with my beginners (along with snippets from other publications as well as my own stuff) and it is timelessly popular and very practical.
