I started violin at recently and bought this book based on the reviews. I'm self-teaching and have found that this is plenty good enough to get me through the awkward beginner phase. Would recommend! Handy pull-out in the middle to help remember finger patterns / parts of the violin.

used these books before - I learnt with the old ones! the new tune a day with cd are great, much better especially if teaching yourself, or just getting going before paying for lessons.

Format: Paperback
Alongside the great service, this book is also very handy - it has every step in the book for even the most recent beginner. It starts with plucking, then onto the bow and strings. I have been trying to read music and been unable to get a hang of it - this book is so easy I haven't even noticed that I can read it reasonably easily now!

I bought this book along with the violin for dummies book (which is also great!!!!!). It's content is in 'Lessons', which you can work with your Tutor/Teacher, or on your own. There's 15 Lessons, and a test after each set of 5, therefore 3 Tests which enable you to see how much you've learnt, or what you might need to refresh upon. The CD is easy to use and follow.

the book is very informative and has every thing you need for the beginner this is book 1 so when i finish getting through this i will look to buy book 2, yes it has a CD and though that has a tuning help, i would recommend buying a tuner either electronic or pitch pipes easy to use and cheep to buy. the secret is of course practice. and with any book or tutorial thats not the books fault if you are just to lazy...

A new and up to date version of this classic book - it is informative, instructive, clear, well structured and laid out, and comes with a pull-out fingering chart and an audio CD. Superb and highly recommended to all : )

I chose this book on the recommendation of my teacher - who works with me and then I practice alone at home. The CD takes some getting used to, but I've only had it five weeks!
