If you order the book by itself, I could see where one would be disappointed. However, with the CD the book is excellent. The book starts with a couple of simple exercises on the open A and D, then adds new notes with the fingering labeled. Very helpful for a beginner! Almost immediately one plays, and stick with me here, Twinkle Twinkle, HOWEVER, there are 4 somewhat rapid bowing patterns used, so right away you are learning rhythm and timing and fast bowing - all very useful things! In addition, it gets your ears used to the open string interval. You can tell by ear if those 2 strings are in tune. Starting on the next page, more simple melodies are introduced, and quickly one learns to count the beat and take repeats. Turn the page and you start using dynamics - crescendo, decresendo, ritard, etc. The songs are kind of fast, so you learn right away that you can't drag your feet, you have to keep up. This is real life in an orchestra - you have to count the beat, respect the dynamics, and keep up. This system is a huge help! I am using it in addition to the work I'm doing with a new and wonderful teacher, although I'm doing this on my own on the side. I highly recommend the book AND CD for anyone starting out, or even if you've been at it for a little while and are not progressing as quickly as you would like. It's also fun to have something to play along with, and to learn what it's supposed to sound like. It can get old just sawing away on one's own.

This is the book my cello teacher recommended. So I knew the entire product before ordering it. It's aimed at children but at age 65, I find it's an efficient way of getting started!

This is not a self teaching method. It is meant to be used with the aid of a certified Suzuki instructor, and that's why it only contains the sheet music and examples and not any explanations. All of the missing information is to be obtained from the teacher and was left out purposely. That's the way it works with the Suzuki school. It is designed that way. You MUST have a teacher.

One daughter and one son on violin, another daughter on cello. Again, the instruction given in the Suzuki program is so excellent, motivating, and inspiring, that the kids don't want to have summer break from Suzuki. They at least keep their private lessons going! Excellent materials.

This method does a very good job of introducing new techniques one at a time without focusing too strongly on the fact that you're learning a technique. The little folk songs are enjoyable and pleasant to listen to a million times over. As a new Suzuki mother and longtime musician myself, I was a little concerned, but have been very impressed so far. I would definitely suggest this method to parents of younger children. I think that the songs are easy enough for a 5yr old, yet engaging enough for a teenager.

It includes a nice variety of pieces (some are challenging) of short to medium length. Overall, a good series and very enjoyable to learn.
