Far, far better than the CD that comes with some of the Suzuki books (which sounds like they played it on a synthesizer), this David Cerone CD is good for listening. It is a bit too fast in tempo for most students of that level to be able to play along. My son's violin teacher has assigned him a certain amount of listening time as he progresses to each new song, and this CD is perfect for that (I just put it in the van's CD player and set the song to loop until we're all humming it). I wish they would release a second CD at half this tempo- several of the songs feel rushed, even just as listening music.

This is about the nicest performance you will ever hear of Suzuki Book 1. I am glad that I purchased the David Cerone version instead of the standard audio CD. I do think that the price is a little high for what you are getting (I am not sure why this CD is significantly more expensive than the sheet music). Also, FYI this CD is copyright protected. We did not plan to steal copies, but my 3-year-old likes to change CDs herself, sometimes leaving them on the floor and causing our teething infant to grab them and bite them (which of course scratches them)... anyway, I wanted to make a copy so that the original was not ruined in 3 minutes. That was not possible given the copyright protection. Overall, good purchase.

I agree 100% with the last reviewer on both a student level AND as a violin teacher. It bugged me as a student that these recordings were played so fast, and now as a teacher I thinks it's even more ridiculous! Excellent cd, it's just too bad it's illogical speed-wise. This is why I often record myself playing these songs slower for my students to listen to instead.

There is the fourth variation of Twinkle that is missing from this CD, the variation with 2 triplets for each note. I have no idea why they would have left that one out. Very annoying for my 6-year-old, who is learning to play them all. Also, it is played way too fast, but I might overlook that if it actually contained all the songs we need!

My child was eager to read and practice when it arrived in the mail. Everyday she practices and everyday she gets better and better and going as far as to experiment with different compositions of her own. This was a really good deal. Thank you.

The Book was good and we used the methods to learn to play the psaltry. Was well pleased with the product both in the quality and the presentation of what it was on the site.

As other reviews have mentioned, this CD is missing the 4th variation of Twinkle ("Pineapple") which is found in the accompanying book. Aside from that, the pieces are played beautifully and are an excellent example for Suzuki students to listen to in order to become familiar with how they should sound when played correctly. My understanding is that the CD is for listening purposes, to "tune the ear", rather than for students to play along with, which is why the tempo of some may seem a little fast for the beginner. It is quite pleasant to listen to, and has a fairly short running time, which you will appreciate if you have to listen to it every day :)

He enjoyed being able to hear the songs that he was supposed to be playing from the book. It is nice to learn to play something then to be able to play along with the CD to see if you did it correctly. It is quite fun actually. I highly recommend this and the price can't be beat!
