One of my goals is to learn to read music along with playing violin. With familiar songs, being a guitar player, I tend to get a few notes then move on by ear (not reading). The songs in the books are challenging but not so complicated that I get frustrated. Really just getting started but looking forward to working through them. Alison's material is excellent. I highly recommend it.
Alison, her channel, and her arrangements are amazing! I am 30 years old and learning to play the violin - something I've always wanted to do. I can read music, but I had absolutely NO VIOLIN SKILLS before I tuned into Alison's channel. In a matter of weeks I am playing full songs, thanks to her. These beginner songs are fun and interesting. So much of the beginner music is dull and makes practicing a bore. If you are a beginner violinist, buy these books and watch the tutorials that go along with them You will not be disappointed!
I listened to several songs from each of these books on YouTube before I purchased them, and I liked the songs very much. I think if you're interested in at least 2 or 3 of the Simply Series books, you should just go ahead and buy the whole collection because it doesn't cost that much more. I especially like the Gypsy music and I'm looking forward to playing those songs. BONUS: most of the songs in the Simply Jigs & Reels book could be played on the tinwhistle too, if you or a friend plays the tinwhistle.
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!
Thank you very much for the series. I love all of them.
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!
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.
Wonderful product.... exactly as described and easy to follow. You make learning fun again at age 57.
