To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a very well done book. You can download examples to play with too. Even if you read music you may find 14 days too short a time. The author does acknowledge that people may need longer. Getting a good sound from your violin will take longer than 14days for most. Worth a look.
I just opened up my instrument today, and this book is so far perfect as a proxy-teacher. Elegantly simple statements are followed by informative pictures and diagrams. Finally, sheet music has meaning! I'll update as I progress, but this book is a gem so far.
This is an excellent introduction to the violin for absolute beginners. Each lesson offers simple exercises to get you accustomed to navigating the instrument skillfully, ending with a short melody to help you assimilate everything you've learned. I especially enjoy the inclusion of tab notation - it makes learning so much easier for someone who has little experience with standard notation. Very pleased with this!
I've always wanted to learn violin but was intimidated because I have absolutely no experience playing an instrument. I looked at A LOT of books on Amazon and decided on this one....and I'm glad I did! This manual had me playing notes in no time! It's clearly written and easy to understand. I highly recommend this book!!!
Like the format of the book and for someone just learning the violin it is terrific! You obviously will not learn the violin in 14 days, but we all already know that, so I am letting the title of the book slide, if you get my drift!! A Great Starter Book for Learning the violin until the day you die!! That is if you keep up with Practicing, and doing so Slowly...
An eminently practical, straightforward, and expertly arranged how-to, with a friendly, encouraging tone and the tips that only someone with many years of teaching and playing experience can provide. A trustworthy and spunky guide for the student who wants to really tackle the violin!
