        Clear notation and clear progression towards first position notes on 4 strings.
        It could do with a couple more songs that combine notes of various strings.

        This is an excellent book to use with younger students, starting with basic rhythms written without pitches and then moving onto notation written on the stave. There are often words for the tunes so you can sing them together, and pictures that can be coloured in.
        The front cover needs a makeover and there really ought to be an accompanying CD.

        Great first music book!

        The best introduction to playing the violin I have found, very clear and uncluttered. The sort of book that parents will find possible to support well. Every time a new note is introduced it appears as a very clear pattern at the top of the page, and the notes are large enough for even very young children to read easily.
