A comprehensive method for the older beginner.
Violinworks, in two volumes, is a comprehensive method for the adult beginner, taking students carefully from the very first steps to around Grade 3 standard. The approach suits self-taught beginners as well as those who have teachers, and emphasizes the importance of good habits from day one, of using your ear, and of always aiming for the best sound. Each volume contains a wide selection of repertoire, plus detailed descriptions and photos to demonstrate correct playing positions.
The accompanying CD includes play-along tracks for all pieces, with piano, string quartet, or band backings, plus aural exercises and downloadable PDFs of piano accompaniments. There are supporting video clips and additional resources on a dedicated website, making Violinworks a complete resource for all new learners.
