    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. I also highly recommend acquiring the accompanying CD... 5/5 ken (Boston, MA USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: The ABCs of Violin for the Absolute Beginner: Violin, Book 1 (Paperback) The ABC's of Violin has played an enormous role in fulfilling my dream of learning to play the violin.

    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

    mostly sheet music

    0 3/5 Snowbird "SB" (Arizona) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The ABCs of Violin for the Absolute Beginner: Book & CD (Paperback) The sheet music is basic and good for beginners. However, I was expecting actual lessons or instructions, ie. how to hold the bow, finger placement, etc. So I was disappointed. I use it in addition to an online video course I signed up for that is separate from this book. So don't think this will teach you anything, its just a compilation of beginning sheet music and CD with piano accompaniment for playing along. Must get the basic skills from somewhere else. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 8, 2014

    The CD facilitates learning and practicing the pieces and scales in violin book 1 while providing extra fun for beginning violin students of all ages in the privacy of their homes.

    The ABCs of Violin for the Absolute Beginner, Book 1 now comes with a special CD consisting of three components: 34 performance pieces of violin with piano accompaniments, piano accompaniment tracks by themselves for play-along, and a printable pdf file of the piano accompaniments.
    Author Janice Tucker Rhoda has designed her path-breaking instruction series, The ABCs of Strings, to encourage students of all ages to play the Violin.
    Janice Tucker Rhoda's phenomenally successful series, the ABCs of Strings owes much of its success to the wonderful original material for beginning students and to the sensitive arrangements of familiar classical selections, folk songs and fiddle tunes.

    Truly Great Beginner Material

    0 5/5 Jeremy Casey (Auburn, AL) - See all my reviews This review is from: 60 Minute Introduction to Violin For Beginners (DVD) This is the perfect DVD for someone who has never played the Violin or fiddle before. It teaches everything from holding the violin, to using the bow, to learning how to play your first songs. I found that after a month I was ready to move on to classical songs. It truly was a great and cheap way to learn. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 6, 2004

    Don't bother. Get a real teacher instead.

    This is more of a critique than a review of this DVD. Please understnad that I'm not a professional violin teacher. I have had about 3 months of lessons years ago and I can barely play the violin.The instructor in this DVD claimed, at the beginning, that the fundamentals learned from this DVD will enable the student to play in any style including classical, blue grass, country, and rock and roll. I think it did not deliver on this promise.Here are the chapters in this DVD1. Introduction2. Playing condition3. Bow Preparation4. Tuning the violin5. Holding the violin6. Left Hand position7.

This review is from: Grace 1/4 Size Violin for Beginners, Students with Case and Bow, Free Rosin and Extra Set of Merano Brand Strings for Replacement (Toy) The price was really the make or break for this... I'm enrolling my kids in music lessons and was hoping this would provide what they need... I don't have to worry about breaking the bank if they accidentally damage it...Violin is my favorite instrument though i don't play it - yet.....The instructions weren't the best, but they gave you enough information for a determined parent to be able to work it...The tuning pieces had to be pushed in a bit to give them more support and keep from going out of tune, but other than that it's exactly what I was hoping for! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 14, 2014
