My Trio Book (Mein Trio-Buch) (Suzuki Violin Volumes 1-2 Arranged for Three Violins), Violin 2

Creator: Kerstin Wartberg | Music - 2002-05-01

This series contains all of the pieces from Volumes 1 and 2 of the Suzuki Violin School arranged for three violins.

Publisher: Alfred Publishing Company

About this book
This series contains all of the pieces from Volumes 1 and 2 of the Suzuki Violin School arranged for three violins. Suzuki Violin Volume 1 serves as the violin 1 part. The pieces can be played with or without piano accompaniment, which expands their performance possibilities. Another advantage is that students at different playing and reading levels can make music together. The score contains a chart that lists the level of difficulty of each piece and each part so that the teacher can easily assign parts. A CD is available containing all of the trio arrangements. All of the parts were purposely kept as simple as possible. A table listing the reading skills required for each piece is found in the back of the violin 2 and violin 3 books.

About this book
Berlioz's Orchestration Treatise is a classic textbook which has been used as a guide to orchestration and as a source book for the understanding both of Berlioz's music and of orchestral practice in the nineteenth century. This was the first English translation of Berlioz's complete text since 1856, and it is accompanied throughout by Hugh Macdonald's extensive and authoritative commentary on the instruments of Berlioz's time and on his own orchestral practice, as revealed in his scores. It also includes extracts from Berlioz's writings on instruments in his Memoirs and in his many articles for the Parisian press. The Treatise has been highly valued both for its technical information about instruments but also for its poetic and visionary approach to the art of instrumentation. Berlioz was not only one of the great orchestrators of the nineteenth century, he was also the author with the clearest understanding of the art.

    Much better than I expected

    I wrote this review for the person who knows nothing about violins at all:This violin is of much higher quality than I ever imagined. It is not, of course, even a good violin by professional standards, but it is a very solid beginner's instrument. I bought it for myself, though I am not a violinist, but I have been playing guitar, bass, and keys for more than six years, and I have played violins before. My ex-girlfriend lent me her first violin when we were dating, and it was really, really horrible. This one is pretty close to her current violin, which was a pretty decent student model. I did a lot of research before buying this one, and I'm really glad I did. It is rated highly by violin teachers and other violinists, but very lowly by people who have no idea what they are talking about. I have read that a lot of violins under $100 don't even have a sound post, which is a crucial part of the violin and absolutely cannot be discarded.

    Great quality/price ratio!

    0 5/5 Captain Cadabra - See all my reviews This review is from: Mendini 4/4 MV300 Solid Wood Satin Antique Violin with Hard Case, Shoulder Rest, Bow, Rosin and Extra Strings (Full Size) (Electronics) Great violin? No. As nice as the ones the music stores rent for $25 a month, yes. Comes with tons of accessories that would cost you $30-40.As a violin teacher, I like to have these on hand for cheap entry level instruments, or rent for $10/month. That way a student doesn't have to get into a year contract at a local music store if they aren't sure if they want to stick with it or not.A great way to get started on the violin for VERY little money. After owning this violin for a year or so, the student can decide to invest in a nicer one, and pass this along to a sibling/friend/Craigslist.Only disclaimer is: make sure you have someone who can setup a violin for you (the case with all violins, regardless of quality). They are NOT instruments that can be played right out of the box, and if you have a store do this for you, it's probably a $30-45 fee. Find a violin playing friend that will do it for free for you :) 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 21, 2011

    Amazing for $59

    My granddaughters started learning on some child-sized versions of this violin. I play a little piano and clarinet and couldn't resist trying out their violins. I had so much fun with them that I decided to order a full size version. How could you go wrong for $59? Well I don't think you can. My copy (the body) is nicely made. True the fingerboard appears to be painted wood rather than ebony and true the fine tune adjusters don't work extremely well and true that the bridge (both of them that came with the kit) folded nearly in half when the violin was tuned but all that aside, this violin sounds very nice to my untrained ear and for a beginner is easy to play in terms of finger action on the strings. I've read complaints about problems with tuning and pegs slipping. I had that problem with the violin too at first. However, now after two weeks of use the violin's strings have stretched and for the past few days i can pull it out of its case without needing to do a complete... 3/5 Terry D.

    Good for a beginner.

    I received this quickly and in okay condition. The package was extremely light and I worried about the condition and how it would play, but it was okay. The case is wonderful. It has room for all her little items that go with it and room for another bow, plus adjustable straps, so she can carry it over her shoulders like a backpack. It also came with the replacement strings. My only real complaint was that whoever packed it, did not seem to do it with the best care. Some of the bow strings, five that I counted, were broken. There were also many strings caught in the little device that holds the bow down. Working with it and trying to take it off very carefully (I played a violin not too many years ago, so I know how delicate it can be), resulted in even more strings being broken. Some we had to break because of how twisted they were; we couldn't lift it out at all without breaking them. Eventually, we decided to go get her another bow for a back up, but the bow that came with it is... 4/5 GreenKitten (California) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    0 5/5 kimberly j. bucceri - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: GRACE 1/2 Size Natural Acoustic Violin with Case and Bow + Free Rosin+Merano Brand E String She begged for a violin for Christmas coz they were using instuments in music class at school and she liked the way the teacher could play the violin. Surfing the internet for used, auctioned violins was quite discouraging as, even broken ones were priced pretty much out of our league. For the heck of it I checked one more site and found this. Brand new, never been used, comes with soft case and rosin, all for only $30 plus shipping. It arrived on schedule and on Xmas morning our granddaughter about turned inside out she was so happy! This of course made us happy so, yes, I love this! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 4, 2013

I told my beginner students to select a cheap violin to make sure it is something they really want to do. Several of my students selected the Palatino violin. They are some of the best violins in the class! After the first couple of weeks they kept their tune great! The pegs make them easy to tune and the bridge seems to stay in place fairly well. I would highly reccomend this violin to a beginning student. The violins have a pretty and professional appearance as well. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 14, 2011

    Beautiful!

    My wife and I read many reviews before settling on this violin...Amazed! The instrument is beautiful looking the the case is very nice as well. Due to my inexperience with this particular instrument and over excitement to have it ready and playable for our daughters birthday gift, I did pop the fat G string and had to run out and get a new one. I found the new string to be better quality though so sure you may get steal of a price on this one but their is always room to for improvement with a few upgrades later. WORKS though keeps it's tune the fine tuners are the key, DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE TOP PEGS, it's not a guitar.As for the bridge that many peoples reviews have complained about and scared me for a few...after thinking about it and researching confirming the reasoning for the bridge not being installed during shipping or if the instrument is not in use for a while, the tension is released to prevent warpage to the entire instrument and damage to the delicate bridge... 5/5 Joseph - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great Instrument For Starting Out

    My teacher was more than pleasantly surprised when I brought this MV400 to him for setup.. Which by the way, was nothing more than tuning the strings. The action, tuning pegs, bridge and sound post were all matched and aligned properly. My instructor was pleased to note the violin had inlaid purfling as well as a solid set of strings. In fact, the strings (according to his trained ear, not mine) are higher quality and sound than a "Red Label Super Sensitive" set I purchased. The bows are of various weight and quality, with one being a better option than the other in this starter kit. I do recommend purchasing a different rosin for a darker tone.The instrument is not perfect, nor is it professional grade but for the beginning student (or in my case, the returning student) but a better value will likely not be found. I will be able to make it sing for a few years to come. My instructor labeled this violin as a "grade 7 or 8 level instrument."

    You get what you pay for

    I am a strings teacher in the public school system (California) and one of my students received this as a gift for the holidays. I tuned it up for her to play and here are my thoughts. Its nice that she got something but I would have preferred something just a little better. The violin seems heavier than it should be and that always suggests poor quality wood. Yes it may be handcarved but any wood can be "handcarved". Strings are replaceble and should be replaced with something better. If it had come with better quality strings that would have added $15-$20 to the price. The bow is very poor quality and I predict (based on my over 20 years experience with cheaper instruments) that it wont last more than 1 year before it becomes tired and won't tighten. The horsehair is not set into the bow properly using glue rather than compaction. A better bow would run $70.00.

    Ricard Bunnel

    Very good sound, great service

    I purchased a Ricard Bunnel G2 from Kennedy Violins about two weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the instrument. I found out about them while reading reviews about other cheaper violins and decided to check out their website. I really liked the YouTube videos that they have put together for most of their violins, which I found very informative and gave me a good feeling about their instruments.

I found out about them while reading reviews about other cheaper violins and decided to check out their website. I really liked the YouTube videos that they have put together for most of their violins, which I found very informative and gave me a good feeling about their instruments.

    Love Kennedy Violins

    At this point I am obsessed with this, I did so much research and it has truly paid off!!!! Here is what I have learned (or guessed from what I have read). This guy, Joel Kennedy, the best I can figure about 30-40 years old was unhappy with the crappy violins his students were bringing in for lessons. They call them VSO's (Violin Shaped Objects). So he found a source in his travels to China, to make a violin that is affordable but made to his standards.Again this is what I have learned, or guessed, violins under $100 dollars are VSO's, made with plywood and lacquer finished to look like a violin. We bought our beginner violin for around $260 from Kennedy Violins. It is made from tight grained spruce wood from the Himalayas, maple, and a second grade ebony (but still a really high grade). These are the proper materials for a violin to be made out of. The finish of her violin is hand rubbed oil finish (I think my favorite quote from them is "lacquer is great finish... 5/5 Amiba Productions "zagoon" - See all my reviews This review is from: Ricard Bunnel G2 Violin Outfit 4/4 (full) Size At this point I am obsessed with this, I did so much research and it has truly paid off!!!!

    Excellent Violin

    Though I am a beginning violinist, this is already my second violin, and I wish it had been my first.I initially purchased a violin outfit through a different company because it had decent reviews, was very inexpensive, and seemed a good enough start for someone who has wanted to learn violin for quite some time but doesn't know if they'll take to it and therefore doesn't want to fork over an entire paycheck for something that may only serve as a very expensive decoration on their wall.Unfortunately, it sounded awful. Far beyond the typical squeaks and scratches often produced by a beginning violinist--the sound quality was in fact so poor that it was virtually unplayable, because I couldn't distinguish my mistakes from the awful wailing of the violin itself. Originally I decided that I would upgrade the very cheap strings already installed on it and see if that made a difference, however a lucky internet search brought me to the website for Kennedy Violins,... 5/5 Jennifer - See all my reviews This review is from: Ricard Bunnel G2 Violin Outfit 4/4 (full) Size Though I am a beginning violinist, this is already my second violin, and I wish it had been my first.I initially purchased a violin outfit through a different company because it had decent reviews, was very inexpensive, and seemed a good enough start for someone who has wanted to learn violin for quite some time but doesn't know if they'll take to it and therefore doesn't want to fork over an entire paycheck for something that may only serve as a very expensive decoration on their wall.Unfortunately, it sounded awful.

    Great Value

    Lets face it, fractional sized violins are usually for students who will out grow them. Student violins usually come with a foam wedge of some type that do not adequately support or add comfort. This item is reasonalbly priced, adjustable and comfortable for my son.Why pay some music stores outragious prices for similar items? The ones I see are of similar quality, but more fussy to install and adjust.When I showed this model to my local music store (and explained I didn't want to pay $30+ for a "nicer shoulder rest") they imeadiately were curious and wanted to know where I got it for under $20. They wanted the brand as well. Bet they will be stocking these too, but I doubt they will have the amazon price!My son loves it, and it works well. I've bought the larger sized one for my daughter who is an advanced violinist. She loves it as well. So when my youngest wanted to play the violin, this was a no brainer accessory.Amazon... 5/5 R.

    0 5/5 ratherbeatthebeach (Klamath Falls, OR United States) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Everest EZ Series Shoulder Rest for 1/2 Violin (Misc.) Holds on better than Kun chin rest. My Kun chin rest always slips off. This one was cheaper and sturdier feeling. It does seem to sitjust a smidgen higher though at its lowest position than the Kun. Could be an issue if your neck is short. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 10, 2013
