    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

    Green Violin <3

    The color is a deep beautiful green....little darker then the picture appears. Everything is shipped loose and that is a GOOD thing! Loose meaning the strings ARE attached but are not tightened same with the bow hair. There is no instructions so if you really need help setting up your violin or tuning it I suggest going to Youtube.com that is a very helpful site when needing information on things...they even have violin lessons! I did get new rosin but was later told the rosin that the violin came with was fine. If you are having trouble keeping the pegs in you need to "tighten and push" then into the hole. Not to hard or you may break a peg or string." I am not sure about theses strings but I bought a back up pair of strings in case I broke one. The sound is great as far as I know. Also I have ordered a new bridge because the bridge this violin comes with does not have the notches in it....I feel more comfortable with notches in the bridge. I would recommend this to someone who wants... 5/5 Grandma - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This review is from: 1/2 Half Size Student Beginners Violin with Case and Accessories - Natural & DirectlyCheap(TM) Translucent Blue Medium Pick (Electronics) This is a great violin however it was missing the most important piece - the bridge, making it impossible to play. Thankfully my daughter's teacher had one & put in, otherwise I would have had to return it. The "bridge" that was provided was a piece of Styrofoam. Beware when purchasing that you may not get a complete violin. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 16, 2014

    0 5/5 Aaron D'Angier - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: GRACE 4/4 (Full) Size Natural Acoustic Violin with Case and Bow+Rosin+Extra Set of Strings Let's be clear - this is an instrument for less than $40. I have many years of playing piano, guitar, and various other instruments. After picking up my mandolin recently, I decided I would like to give a violin a try. After looking through reviews and reading comments, I decided to gamble $40 on this one.It makes a really steady sound and reverberates well. It is not a professional instrument, by any means, but it is also far above a toy. The tuners work and everything functions as it should.It was shipping strung, but they were loose, so there were no problems with that for me, unlike another reviewer. I also have not had any issues with the tailstock like some of the other reviewers.There are a few blemishes with the finish, and a few places where the stain just didn't get into the corners, but they are not glaringly noticeable.For the price, I am extremely satisfied. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 13, 2014

    A Steady Companion

    I'm a little sentimental because this is my first violin ever (which also probably means you should take my review with a grain of salt, as I do not yet know what makes a good or bad violin), but so far, I love this thing.I was worried that it would come in parts--without the bridge attached, without the strings attached, or worse, with the strings broken, with the tuners messed up, etc., etc.--but all of my fears proved unfounded. When I took the violin out of its shipping package, it was safely tucked away in a very nice little case. I opened the case and found a beautiful, wooden violin with the bridge perfectly in place, the strings perfectly in tact, all the tuners--the fine tuners and those on the scroll--still in place, and, at least to my untrained ear, it sounded fairly well tuned. The bow was also in the case, along with rosin, straps for the case, and an extra set of strings.Literally the only adjustment I had to make upon pulling out the violin was... 5/5 jennifer - See all my reviews This review is from: GRACE 4/4 (Full) Size Natural Acoustic Violin with Case and Bow+Rosin+Extra Set of Strings I'm a little sentimental because this is my first violin ever (which also probably means you should take my review with a grain of salt, as I do not yet know what makes a good or bad violin), but so far, I love this thing.I was worried that it would come in parts--without the bridge attached, without the strings attached, or worse, with the strings broken, with the tuners messed up, etc., etc.--but all of my fears proved unfounded.
