Suzuki Violin School Volume 2 Book & CD
We now offer one of the most widely used violin education courses. These books are highly effective at teaching violin and developing the necessary techniques that will be invaluable down the road. I had the pleasure of using these in my early violin education, and while they can be somewhat dry (emphasizing repetition, utilizing classical music, and bare of cute clipart that other programs use), they are very direct and efficient in teaching while building a strong foundation of necessary skills.
This program, when compared to the Ebaru series we carry by Eden Vaning-Rosen, has a less fun but more direct and streamlined approach. The Ebaru series caters to younger children (which has its own merits) whereas the Suzuki method has a little stricter feel and more structure for a more mature child. Each book has approx. 25-45 softcover pages and includes a CD for play-along practice. - Laura
