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. But this is more then just an easy anthology; 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 you to Grade 2 standard. Lively illustrations contribute visually to the excitement of learning the violin.
