Sassmanshaus: Early Start on the Violin Volume 1

For more than three decades the Sassmannshaus Tradition has been the household name for excellence in beginner methods in German-speaking countries and is now available in English. This topseller book is for starters from age four and older. Note reading is introduced from the beginning. Children's songs, using all fingers, are included in level 1 and note values from the wholenote to eighth notes. Melodies are often underlaid with text so that it can be perceived as a whole. Children playfully learn reliable technique at the earliest age. Songs and scales in different positions are easily explained and mastered within the first year rather to confine children to the first position for many years. In contrast to other beginner methods, The Sassmannshaus Tradition progresses swiftly by introducing advanced techniques in rudimentary form, such as shifting and varied bow strokes. The large print notes and text as well as many colorful illustrations are particularly child-friendly and very attractive to children of all ages. The substantial volumes contain comprehensive material and carefully calibrated learning curves. They keep children curious and interested for many years.
