        Beautiful music for the violin in styles from many regions of the world with first class backing tracks made by real musicians (not keyboards). Made me want to get all the individual books in the series even though they don't have the backing tracks with them.

        Great little book of tunes from all over the world. My girls love to dip in to the book on days when they are fed up of practising scales and grade pieces i.e. most days!

        This is a brilliant book. Every violin student should have one! I use it after Grade 5 (yes, I know most of the pieces are much easier), for a term of really enjoying different styles of music making. There are expressive pieces, fast ones, well known ones and failry obscure ones. Very useful for performances and ensembles. They nearly always ask for Book 2!
