Violin Playtime Book 3
13 composers including Telemann, Tchaikovsky, Gluck and Kabalevsky
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.
