The Sassmannshaus Tradition: Early Start On The Viola - Volume 3

Books | Viola

Publisher: Bärenreiter
Format: Books | Instrumental Tutor
For more than three decades the Sassmannshaus Tradition has been the household name for excellence in beginner string methods in German-speaking countries. More than half a million students have successfully learned to play string instruments using this publication.

The publication of the four Violin books in 2008 in a fully adapted English version has been a big success. On the back of this success story Bärenreiter published the four books for Cello in 2009 and now presents the four books for Viola in a newly adapted version for today's English speaking children.

What makes this Viola method so unique?

  • Large print notes and texts as well as many colourful illustrations are ideal for pre-school as well as school children.
  • Note reading is emphasised from the first lesson, encouraging ensemble playing from the very beginning.
  • Songs and scales in different positions are easily mastered within the first year of playing to ensure that children are not confined to first position playing.
  • Advanced viola techniques such as varied bow strokes and shifting are introduced in a basic form.

          The Sassmanshaus books are very good. They clearly explain finger patterns and a student will get a chance to play different tunes with the same pattern. Most tunes are nice. This is a very good book to use after fiddle time runners before introducing position playing.
          This is not really a bad point but the book is very 'classical'. There are no alternative music styles here.
