              Set out in a way that works well as a beginner. Chooses exercises and pieces that are in a great order for learning notes and technique.
              The book looks a bit old fashioned. (Pictures are very dated and it could do with a splash of colour to make it more interesting for a young child)

              When I first started to learn the violin, I was taught with the Eta Cohen method - I am now using them to teach students myself. They're great fun and I can thoroughly recommend the series!

              I had just been taking violin lessons for a year. When I knew about this book I brought it and found it very interesting, it helped me better than the ones I had been using before. As the author says, it is also useful for adults, like me.

              I imagine this would be a good book if you have teacher to go through the exercise. For example, it does not illustrate which is string D. I think it would be fair to say that the book assumes prior rudiments of musical knowledge.

              I find it a really useful resource, especially for older children and adults. It is well structured and provides a very solid introduction. If I have any criticism it is that it is beginning to show it's age slightly and can seem a little dry, but really as a first tutor book, I don't think you can go far wrong.
              Anna Woodward - (Wimbledon)
              I have tried using this book with pupils, but find it very dry, and with nowhere near enough music on the G and E strings (after all, these are the hardest notes to read for most people, so they need the practice) - in fact the pieces seem to be heavily biased towards the D string notes. My pupils also disliked the books - the lack of colour, lack of humour, lack of explanations, and the crammed together look of the pages. I also feel that many of the pieces are not violinistic - they cannot comfortably be played well by a beginner. Try Hey Presto or Fiddle Time instead!
