I think my title says it all- most books are just that... books. I've been playing piano for over 20 years, and not once did I ever have one of my teachers sit down and play the piece herself, and then walk me through how the piece is laid out (granted- I don't think I've had a teacher who has written their own books until now). Having a teacher who can give you a "place to start" is a must for almost all instruments, and the violin is no exception. Aside from the "drums", violin can take it's place as the hardest musical instrument to master, no hands-barred (pun intended ;) ). Alison does a great job simplifying the stages and breaking down each piece into sizeable chunks, including fingering and any other "gotcha's" that can be a part of learning a new musical piece. Alison has put so much into these series and videos and she deserves all my thanks and admiration. Thanks Alison! Grant on 19th Nov 2016
Thank you very much for the series. I love all of them. Gizelle Baldas on 5th Nov 2016
The Simply Series for Violin is easy to download and print at home. I now have five violin books featuring different musical themes: 1) Country, 2) Gypsy, 3) Jazz, Blues & Rags, 4) Jigs & Reels, and 5) Romantic. Alison Sparrow has organized each book into easy-to-read sheet music. I look forward to working through her books! Hilary Shew on 24th Aug 2016
Again Alison has given us some really valuable tuition.
This Combo is terrific value for money, and is real pleasure trying to play at the moment, I am just a very much beginner but find that the way she teaches totally invaluable and in a way that is easy to understand, not too full of the technical stuff.
Thank you Alison.

Thank you so much! I found the music and the videos! Very helpful for a very beginner. My violin was my sonn's who passed away last May, 2015. He was just starting to learn, so I decided to learn after he passed away. I am 56 years old. Unknown on 29th Mar 2016
Wonderful product.... exactly as described and easy to follow. You make learning fun again at age 57. Rollie on 26th Mar 2016
I have recently purchased my first violin at age 54 (my poor husband........) I am learning via your tutorial on You Tube and have purchased this series of books to assist with my learning. Thank you so much Alison, your tutorials and books are very easy to understand you are a pleasure to listen to and help keep me motivated through a lot of frustration. I am hoping in a year or so that I will be able to play something that resembles an actual melody, but for now it is practice practice practice (and hopefully for a long time to come) Unknown on 18th Mar 2016
Thank you Erik on 12th Mar 2016
I love this series of books! It's hard to find good beginner material for violin. And it's great to find something to supplement my lesson book. I'm also considering getting the Mini Concerto. :) Elizabeth E on 21st Feb 2016
Although I'm an adult I am absolutely new to violin and to reading music. What I need most is practice practice practice. I'm studying with a local instructor AND with Alison's you-tube pointers which I was blessed to find in addition to an app featuring her lessons. I purchased all 5 of her "Simply" books (which I call the Simply Alison series) and I'm very pleased with the practice they give me in reading music. I especially like fast tunes and was happy to find that about half of the 50 songs are described as fast, lively or swinging! She offers so much for free, I am happy to be able to contribute a little by purchasing these books. Rick G on 15th Dec 2015
