With Violin Playtime, the beginner violinist can make music from the very first lessons. In the three books that make up the series, there are over a hundred little pieces, a treasure-trove of attractive tunes - some traditional, some by composers of the past, some newly composed. This is more then just an easy anthology, as the underlying approach is 'learn as you play', and a carefully devised ground plan of technical development makes it a manual in disguise, a tutor without text.
This book takes a player from the very beginning to about Grade 1. Lively illustrations contribute visually to the excitement of learning the violin. Violin Playtime Book 2 caters for players at around Grade 1, while Violin Playtime Book 3 is for those approaching Grade 2.
