Violin

Creator: Anne Rice | 1999-09-07

    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

I’ve been wanting to learn to play an instrument for ages, and the violin was my top choice, so I was surprised to find everything I needed for such a good price. It has literally everything you need to start learning the violin – even a super cute reindeer tuner! The case and the violin are gorgeous and well made. The violin has a well-defined voice and has good strings and is made of good materials. It comes with an extra set of strings too, as well as rosin and bridges, a stand, and even a pencil and eraser. This is a wonderful set; I was super excited to get it and I can’t wait until I can play it really well! 0, January 9, 2015

It looks really nice and has a rich sound. Played with it a bit and found it did not come with a soundpost. After installing one it played wonderfully. It's got a nice even tone and its very comfortable to play. I highly recommended for a beginner violinist on a budget. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 10, 2015

    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

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.

However the sound post fell during shipping (It is a small wooden cylinder inside the chamber) and its kind of difficult to tune (may be because I am a beginner). I m still giving it 5 stars because of its quality and good violins don't have the sound post glued and it is expected to fall during shipping.Have fun learning. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 2, 2014

    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

This review is from: Suzuki Violin School Volume 1 - Revised Edition (Book & CD) (Suzuki Violin School, Violin Part) (Sheet music) I bought this to help me learn to play the violin (I am in my 30's). I played the cello as a kid so I was already familiar with stringed instruments and note reading. This a progressive program that builds on itself. The book comes with a CD to help you hear how the songs should be played and that you can play along to.I'd also recommend the "I Can Read Music" book for Violin. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 20, 2008
