Kids love using this book. I teach violin. It is not all that hard and the notes are big and it makes it look fun. Great book. There is a lot of repetition from the first book so if a student has been sitting out a bit from already playing and then comes back in, this would be easy for him to pick up and start here.

Great selection of pieces- the follow up to the beginner book doesn’t dissappoint. My students love playing ode to joy, are you sleeping and spring theme, and parents enjoy listening to these great favorites.
This book also introduces note reading in a simple and fun way.

Excellent beginner books for the violin or viola player in their first or second year. Larry Newman has an entire series of music books for violin, viola and cello that are all excellent for players in their first few years. I would not consider these lesson books, but books to supplement beginner players to learn more popular songs. For my young boys, I have the Don’t Fret colored finger guide on their 1/4 and 1/2 violins. Then to help them find the correct notes, I will sometimes use a blue, yellow, pink and green or orange highlighter to color the notes on sheet music. I know it’s a learning crutch, but it makes finding and playing the correct note faster and easier….the more positive feedback they get in playing a correct note, the longer they stay with learning music and different musical instruments (I hope). I also like the books because the songs are also easy enough for the beginner player to start memorizing songs too. Between the cello, violin and viola, I think we own all of them.

Really happy with this. A good selection of songs, large notes, and fun stuff to play for my 7 year old.
