          Bought this for my 8 year old daughter on the advice of her violin teacher. She enjoys the book and finds it easy to use.

          This method is well-paced and well-balanced: there are plenty of different activities for developing technical skills and the integration of musicianship skills right from the very start is just what is needed for the well-rounded development of a beginner musician - not just someone who can play notes on an instrument! I highly recommend this series and often use it with adults (so long as they don't mind cartoons and big print!).

          I really like this book. It is aimed at the primary school aged learner and provides a very solid but fun introduction to violin playing. It contains lots of pictures, games and singing exercises which encourages good technique in a non-boring way and encourages the development of musicianship right from the beginning. It is well structured, is not too wordy and is well laid out, attractive but concise.
