Product Description

Review

I have been using this book every Christmas for years. The difference is that this new edition inlcudes a CD to play along with, which lots of children love, and it keeps them up to speed. (Jane Gille, Arco, Autumn 2011)

Fantastic accompaniment to my daughters development as a budding violinist. She';s only just received the Christmas book a day or so ago and I'm the one that has to tell her to stop and to remember she needs to practise her set pieces for her grade 2 exam!

I love these music tuition books and am working my way through them, albeit, very slowly. Great for beginners of all ages.

I'm a chromatic harmonica player who needed the discipline of playing along with somebody else, my timing is awful. This is a book with all the well known carols each melody beautifully played twice, unusual, the size of the manuscript is large and easy to read. The CD alone makes it worth the price of the book. I was tempted to award only four stars as there is are not separate accompaniment tracks on the CD, but balanced against quality and value of the book together with the beautifully played carols I decided it deserved 5 stars.

Bought this as an advent present for my daughter and she loved it. She could do most of the pieces sight reading straight away but found the Tchaikovsky one harder. It was great as she could play to the family on Boxing day. The songs are in a range of keys and some come with duets. The CD was good for her to get the tune of some of the unfamiliar carols. At the end there was Auld Lang Syne which wasn't very Christmassy? Very good price as well. Only complaint is the pages aren't as good quality as the other Fiddle time books.

My daughter has been having weekly lessons for 3 months but has not yet learnt enough notes to play a single one of these 'easy pieces'. Im sure she will get there - probably in time for next Christmas! Looks a really nice book but not as easy and accessible as the fiddle time starter book which she loves.

Lovely book of easy violin pieces. If you want an idea of the standard of pieces in this collection - I have done my Grade 2 exam and these pieces were much easier and were relaxing to play. It comes with C.D and some fab backing music to make you feel you're on stage! What could be better?
