The songs in this book are wonderful. As a beginner adult student, playing “Mary Had a Little Lamb”, or along that line, was not going to keep my interest. These songs are a perfect selection. They are simple enought to learn from and advance through. The complexity is starts simple enough and they increase in complexity as you move forward, but not with huge leaps. There are tips in the back that Alison has identified as possible trouble spots. She explained the trouble spots and how to negotiate, just like the YouTube version.
The song that Alison wrote is beautiful! It is a little beyond my capability right now, but I gave it a Shot because of all the songs, she plays them all in her YouTube, this is by far the most beautfiful of all the songs. I cannot wait to be able to play it and give it justice.
Right now I have no instructor. I have been using Alison’s YouTube instruction and some scale books. The music store I visit is closed right now for vacation. I bought my violin last week. They re-open the end of this week. I will go in and sign up for lessons and get fitted for a better chin anf shoulder rest. My violin is the Mendini mv300. It sounds wonderful with the strings it came with, but I swapped them out for a better brand and it is much better now. The chin and shoulderests need replacing, though.
Alison is amazing and the content is the exact difficulty I need!
The online book and accompanying YouTube videos are very helpful in getting started with your adventure.
I think that adding simple TAB on the first group of handouts would be helpful.
I would be more than willing to recommend to any other newbies who have the interest.
I originally didn't intend on spending 10 dollars on music sheets as they can be easily obtained online. Nonetheless, I'm glad I did. The songs are optimized for beginners which is very helpful. 10/10
I love this book. Fast access with the download and print. Alison has done an amazing job for us newbies. I'm 61 and felt I was to old to learn. This collection of music eases you right into it, and before you know it you are playing the violin.
I needed pieces at my level and that's exactly what these are. They are well known and the links to the tutorials help me know if I am playing them right.
I like the book as a beginner. Would like to see a copy of the book that identifies the note.
Having done lessons 1-10 I was dying to try some real songs. The companion book fit perfectly for the level I am at. I'm happily making my way through it and confidence is building as I move from song to song. If you're following Alison's lessons just buy the book, you'll love it!
I am a long-time fan of Alison Sparrow. I have played my way through (at the age of 62 and a beginning violinist) her 100% free lessons and learned so much in the process. Now that she has made available downloadable music, I was quick to purchase. Book 1 is *exactly* what I need to practice the lessons and to build the confidence to become a better and stronger musician. I have also purchased her Book 2 and Book 2 Songs as well as her Simply Series. Following along with her instructional videos, I feel like I am truly coming along. Thank you so much for the generous time you give us and the focus and refinement of your videos
