Class Act Violins provide fun and motivating material for the beginner learning in a small group or class situation.
The ‘Class Act’ series not only provide a wealth of easy music with a 'feel good' jazzy accompaniment (on CD as well as in the teacher's copy), but also rhythm and ear-training exercises, practice patterns,and extensive activities linked to the National Curriculum principles.
Class Act works alongside the teacher. The books provide an abundance of musical material while allowing teachers to use their own ideas on technique and theory. The book encourages playing by ear and introduces notes one at a time to promote sounds musical literacy.
Sarah Watts has a passion for encouraging people to enjoy music. As Artistic Director of the National Youth Music Camps she plays a large part in promoting the Dankworth 'all music' philosophy that influenced her early years.
