    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

    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.

    Review done by a music teacher

    This violin--to be honest is very cheap. Not just in cost but in quality.BUT overall, not too horrible. Especially if you don't have an option on renting one, or if you don't mind buying one to have.It isn't perfect, but there are some decent qualities about it. I'm very persnickety about instruments, my woodwind instruments cost well into and beyond thousands of dollars range, even my beginning ones.This little guy, for what I want it for--learning the basics (fingering, bowing, proper care) is PERFECT for anyone.Here are my notes about this violin:1. The appearance of the violin is alright. It isn't anything special. In fact, it looks as if paper has been placed over the wood frame, and painted to look like it has groves, or actual wood designs.2. The bow is acceptable, it works well enough for a beginner (young and old). It takes some effort getting the strands to be tight enough. I had to do a lot of pushing in and... 4/5 Carole - 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) This violin--to be honest is very cheap.

    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

    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

    Using the book as an adult student

    I am using this book as an adult student. I have to admit that I DREAD the time of day when I pull this book out to practice. The way the information in this book is presented is SO incredibly boring and monotonous. Surely there has to be SOME other way to teach this same information that isn't so incredibly tedious. Right?! I know this book is probably more geared towards children learning. However, if I was a little kid, this book would just squash the joy of learning an instrument right out of me!I don't know why other reviewers say this book goes well with the Suzuki method. (Maybe because the author says that on the back cover?) This book has little to nothing to do with the Suzuki method. As far as I understand it, the Suzuki method is about developing an appreciation and love for music. The Suzuki method is ingenious in that it uses REAL songs and melodies to teach fundamental skills.

    Great for Suzuki Violinists

    0 5/5 Amazon Customer (Tacoma, WA) - See all my reviews This review is from: I Can Read Music: A Note Reading Book for Violin Students (Volume 1) (Spiral-bound) This book is perfectly designed for the Suzuki lesson structure. If there is an able teacher and parent present to introduce and teach each lesson, the book is very successful. My students are exposed to the basic concepts of music theory in a theory class following their weekly group classes - so there is no need to explain basic concepts like the "treble clef" or "staff." There are plenty of introductory reading books out there for the older beginner, but this book has a gradual yet not monotonous pace, catering to an early beginner who has a support structure (parent/teacher).I use this book for all of my students in a studio of 40+ Suzuki Violinists! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 7, 2008

    0 2/5 Ms.Yeager - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: I Can Read Music: A Note Reading Book for Violin Students (Volume 1) (Spiral-bound) I was very disappointed that it didn't offer a more in depth explanation and/or instruction. I am a parent without any experience in music helping my daughter to learn, and was very disappointed that it didn't offer any explanations of the lessons being taught. For the absolute beginner: Don't buy this as it is basically just a book with sheet music. I guess if you already know how to read sheet music you can make use of it, but for those who don't-it's practically useless. Perhaps I just misread the purpose of the book before buying it, but it will be a while before it is of any use to my daughter. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 15, 2011
