impressed book

Great for someone just starting with music. It gives the background of the creation ofthe violin, helpful tips on what to purchase alongside it to get the best out of yourinstrument and also tells you how to read each note or half note carefully steadily and simply. I’d recommend it to anyone.

interesting guide

I’m already a pretty confident violin player, but after reading this book I realised that the
way I learned was actually quite difficult and I could have taken the route that this book did
and made it to where I am much faster. Really recommendable to fellow musicians.

Helpful guide

I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. He makes so much sense and really keeps it simple and to the point. He has his own method and he truly makes you think. Instead of buying expensive diets or products, he just reshapes your thinking. I enjoyed the audio version of this!
