    0 5/5 Suzanne Langlois "JOBeth" (Georgia) - See all my reviews, September 18, 2006

    Well thought out series.

    "For a real violin study, go with Suzuki." While that might work for a child that is ages 3-4 in a one-on-one or small group setting (which is what the Suzuki Method was intended for), it does not work well in large group learning situation for kids who are twice that age, beginning instruments in fourth and fifth grade. And to be honest, almost everything in the Suzuki method *IS* an arrangement of an original work (like the Bach Bouree from the cello suites set for violin), chosen because even in their simplified form they help teach the fundamental concepts.This is my third year using EE2000 in my school program. I usually have between 30-40 students at each grade level in the orchestra. The books and their accompanying CD/DVD work really well and are of the appropriate complexity for the students ages nine through eleven. As a private instructor myself, I recommend to all my students to seek outside instruction, but EE2000 provides a good balance of technical... 5/5 Gene Wie (Irvine, CA USA) - See all my reviews, September 27, 2007

    The ABCs of Violin for the Absolute Beginner

    The ABC's of Violin has played an enormous role in fulfilling my dream of learning to play the violin. I'm overwhelmed by the simplicity of its approach, and it's underlying structure that has so effectively developed my skills. New concepts and techniques are introduced in such a logical manner as to further a student's development while limiting the frustrations and intimidation that frequently accompany a new undertaking such as learning an instrument. I also enjoy the vast repertoire of material presented throughout the book. The material ranges from focused studies to actual songs, encompassing nearly every genre imaginable, from classical to folk. Many of these songs are famous, others are slightly more obscure, but each cleverly selected to introduce a new element or concept at precisely the right time. The variety of music selection has also expanded the future directions that I hope to take my violin playing.

    Best book by far for adult beginner

    0 5/5 "gregw9902" (Tucson, AZ) - See all my reviews This review is from: The ABCs of Violin for the Absolute Beginner: Violin, Book 1 (Paperback) I had always wanted to learn how to play the violin and finally decided to take the plunge last year. It seemed like a good idea to buy some starter books that would help me learn how. I picked up three such books that had been recommended to me. By far the best was the "ABCs of Violin for the Absolute Beginner." The notes were easy to read and the tunes were really fun to play. New ideas were introduced at a good pace--not pushy fast, not pokey slow--just right. I could keep up without feeling overwhelmed, but I felt like I was learning something, too. I'm now near the end of Book 2 of the series and having a blast! Can't wait to try out Book 3.The other two method books I bought just didn't cut it for me. They seemed harder to understand and threw a lot at you all at once. It was the ABCs that really made me want to keep playing--no contest as far as I'm concerned, at least. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 10, 2004

    Excellent from a Teacher's Perspective!!

    I had been searching 15 years for the ideal method to use with my students and this is it! I've been using it for the past 4 years. With this entire series (5 books for violin) my younger and older students have had more enthusiasm to practice and learn to read quicker and better. By the time they play student concertos and advanced solo pieces, their technique is more precise than with other methods.Details:1. It has more variety than other methods--it includes fiddle tunes, classical, folk and improvisational. Continually keeps up my student's interest--they are never bored!2. The warm-ups before each piece make so much sense and have taught me to create my own while teaching violin concertos and advanced solo pieces. Plus they are nice to listen to, so students practice them--unlike other method book's warm-ups which make violin playing seem tedious. The etudes (study pieces) are written well, too.

    Go Violin!

    I ordered this violin on a Sunday evening and recieved it the following Saturday at 9am with the cheapest shipping.This is, well, a cheap violin. You're looking at it because you're interested in getting a cheap violin. Why? I thought of the following:Decor, prop, for a child, to find out if you hate or have an unknown untapped talent for the violin, you think it will be fun, but don't want to spend a lot of cash on a whim.I'm kind of the last two, and I don't have piles of cash lying around. So I figured I can afford that, if I hate it then hey at least it would look pretty in a room of my house somewhere.So yeah, it arrived timely. The case... is cheap. There's like some glue on the felt in spots, wooden debris, the outer material feels a bit flimsy, but it's a case, and it will suffice. It actually looks soft-sided but it's firm. I kinda like it. My interior was red, not the tan.Setting up the bridge is really easy. I'm... 4/5 Robyn (MN, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Better than I expected!

    I purchased this violin on a whim when I was reminiscing about playing as a child. It is a terrific price (cheaper than most toys...or at least the same price as a meal out with the family...) and comes with everything I needed to get started. I was pleasantly surprised that it came well packed and within the suggested time. I was also able to track the item through UPS. I panicked at first because I could not get any sound to come out of it and thought I had been sold a piece of junk. I went to the internet to see if I could figure out what was wrong and found that I needed to attach the bridge that was in the accessory compartment of the case. It was much easier than I thought. I found a great website that explained it all to me [...]and also has free beginning lessons and other important information that I have already found helpful. The other crucial key to getting sound from the violin is to have the bow rosined properly. (You also need to tighted the bow with the little... 5/5 L.

    A little review!

    0 4/5 Joshua Araya (Heredia, Costa Rica) - See all my reviews Ok, first I recommend to buy some extra stuff with this violin to set it up correctly. I've been playing violin now for 18 years and I know that the violin isn't very confortable without a shoulder rest. So I RECOMMEND to buy a good one, for me the best shoulder rests brand is "Kun".Then I recommend to buy 4 fine tuners to tune the violin easier and you'll see that fine tuners will help a lot in the violin tuning and it's more important if you're a begginer.And now let's talk about the violin..As the first thing..Dont expect a Guarneri with this purchase but by the way it comes to a very good instrument so far if you can take care of it and you can play it good and give it maintenance. It has a great sound and it's good if you are learning to play violin because in some years you'll need a better violin.It's a great instrument for learning 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 7, 2009
