My son just switched from the violin to the viola and I was shocked to hear such a difference in the cd's. The violin cd sounds beautiful, while the viola cd has background noise that is VERY noticeable during the quiet songs. The cd actually made me think my speakers were damaged, but after playing another cd I realized it wasn't my stereo. This is a required cd for all Suzuki students so we have to listen to it daily, I certainly wish they made the viola version as well as the others.

I gave this CD 4 stars because of minuses below. However I would highly recommend it because of pluses.

I with my children have been involved with Suzuki violin (6 1/2 years), cello (5 1/2 years) and now viola (beginning). This is a great program when used in a private teaching situation and with sheet music. Suzuki includes quality music for your student to learn. The CD has a professional musician playing through each song and will help the student understand what beautiful tone should sound like on the string instrument.

The pluses to this program:

+Teaches classical music from the great composers of the past.
+Teaches skills and techniques that all string instrument students need to know.
+Advances the student through needed skills by song (skills/techniques increase in difficulty with each song learned)
+Student advances quickly to quality music and builds confidence in their skills and development on the instrument
+Ear training is very important when learning a string instrument and this will help establish good tone if listened to frequently, coupled with practice and good instruction
+ encourages lots of repetition and memorization which is great exercise for the brain
+ Dr. Suzuki believes that any child can learn to play with correct instruction and repetition. He also wanted a to create a music program that produced good people/citizens not just great and important musicians.

The minuses of this program:
-Doesn't include theory or note reading training. Must supplement with other material.
-CD music is played up to speed so student can't really use the piano accompaniment at the end until they have advanced much further then when song was learned.

I took a long break from playing viola. When I used this music before, it was on cassette tape so that should tell you how long of a break I took. I listen to this CD often and I enjoy the quality of the sound. It is such a good compliment to playing the 1st and 2nd books for the suzuki music books. I strongly suggest you get it to help you learn the correct tone for the music you are playing.

Love the CD! It goes perfectly with volumes 1 and 2. My daughter can listen to how the songs should sound before she plays them. I upload the songs from the CD to my daughters iPod touch, which makes it even better. The Suzuki books, this CD, and her private lesson are really helping her make tremendous progress with learning the viola. I highly recommned this item.
