This review is from: 4/4 Size Acoustic Violin with Case,bow,rosin Black for Violin Beginner This "violin" is cheaply made, almost like plastic. None of the strings fit and most of them won't even tighten properly. Do not purchase this instrument, because it's worth nothing. The pictures are deceiving and the case is incredibly cheap. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 4, 2015

This review is from: 4/4 Size Acoustic Violin with Case,bow,rosin Black for Violin Beginner Straight to the details its not the most impressive to look at and definitely not for someone who is sure they want to learn violin. You get what you pay for the quality is expected for the price. I feel as someone who has a passion for wanting to try violin but doesn't want to sink to much money into just testing the water so to speak it will do fine. If you are only looking to see how you will like learning violin by all means get it but if you are more serious and know you want to learn violin put the extra money out for a higher quality one 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 11, 2015

    0 5/5 violinmike (Maine) - See all my reviews This review is from: Suzuki Violin School Volume 1 - Revised Edition (Book & CD) (Suzuki Violin School, Violin Part) (Sheet music) I like this new version of Suzuki violin book 1. It's more cluttered looking with the extra text which makes it a little harder to read the notes than the old version, but it does give the new student useful info. Of course, there is nothing like having a teacher help you refine the skills explained in the book.I also like the ABCs of Violin books and DVDs. Many of my Suzuki colleagues and I think the ABCs of Violin and Viola books are excellent as reading supplements, but we begin adult students in the ABCs of Violin and Viola books which are more appropriate for that age group than the suzuki books. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 23, 2009

    GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm working through volume 6 right now, and finding great music to learn. I've followed the Suzuki program since I started at age seven (I'm fourteen)and had GREAT results. After only seven years, I'm close to the "master" level!!I HIGHLY recommend this program to anyone who wants to learn the violin. It starts with the easiest folk songs possible, and goes to master pieces, teaching you by giving you songs to learn that involve slightly new techniques, and it helps you to build your experience level up too. It's an easy, step-by-step program. I actually got half way through the first book without an instructor, and when I started lessons, my teacher said I had learned the songs well on my own.Most of the kids in my orchestra (a very advanced symphony) use Suzuki.Another note: Suzuki is a "play by ear" method, so if you don't want to learn to play by ear, and you just want to learn to read music, don't get this book!It does not focus on... 5/5 McBee - See all my reviews This review is from: Suzuki Violin School: Violin Part, Vol. 1 (Paperback) I'm working through volume 6 right now, and finding great music to learn.

    Its as close to a professional violin as you can get!

    0 5/5 Maggie Perry - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: ADM® 4/4 Full Size Handcrafted Solid Wood Student Violin with Starter Kits, Popular Violin for Beginners, New Players and Students, Varnish Finish Violin-Sprakle Blue Color Honestly, this is a great starter violin! When I opened the package, it was in its case. The case is lightweight and protective, but I would still suggest being careful with it. There is some assembly acquired, but it was actually super easy- just the bring, a misplaced string, and a peg! Once you figure that out, not a thing is out of place! It has a beautiful even paint job and the sound quality is excellent! The bow was alright, it needs a lot of rosin, unfortunately... the rosin they give is terrible! I'm not sure if its real horse hair or synthetic, but purchasing another bow isn't a bad idea anyway. Once you rosin the bow for a very long time though, it sounds pretty good. I totally recommend this product to anyone learning and trying the violin before upgrading to something more professional. Looks exactly like the picture too! Again, great product! 0, January 11, 2015

    Comparison between Mendini MV300

    First I am going to start off by telling you what I think of this violin itself. It really is a great violin for a beginner with a little work.The good:1. The color is absolutely gorgeous (The picture truly does not do it justice).2. The sound was actually very good. It was certainly suitable for a beginner. Even though it is a painted violin, it really does not dull the sound much. If you upgraded the strings, it would sound much better.3. The case does it's job wellNow the bad:1. The bridge. When this violin arrives, the bridge needs to be set and the strings tuned before it is playable, but the bad bridge makes that a little bit difficult. The bridge was not shaped completely for the violin. The feet were not made to hug the body and there were no grooves for the string to fall into. So it might need a little work, but once you get it set up its good.2. Tuning. I expected it to fall out of tune pretty quickly, as all new violins will. They... 3/5 Lindsey - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    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

    0 3/5 Amazon Customer "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

    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.
    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.
