5.0 out of 5 stars very good February 23, 2009
Format:Sheet music
I like this new version of Suzuki violin book 1. It's more cluttered looking with the extra text which makes it a little harder to read the notes than the old version, but it does give the new student useful info. Of course, there is nothing like having a teacher help you refine the skills explained in the book.

I also like the ABCs of Violin books and DVDs. Many of my Suzuki colleagues and I think the ABCs of Violin and Viola books are excellent as reading supplements, but we begin adult students in the ABCs of Violin and Viola books which are more appropriate for that age group than the suzuki books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spiral edition and cd without case - just what I need October 29, 2008
By E. Dutt
Format:Sheet music|Verified Purchase
This edition has a plastic spiral spine that lets the book be folded to show one page or lie flat without clips, clothes pins etc. That alone makes this a great edition. A CD that only comes in a paper envelope (instead of a case that takes up space and resources) is also a nice feature.

This is our first Suzuki book and we are enrolled in a Suzuki group. The idea is that the cd should be listened to as much as possible (even passively) so it is always either in the cd-player or next to it. We don't really ever put it away.

I don't have experience with the previous editions of the book, but this one is good I think.

1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Edition July 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Haven't even been 40 pages into this thing and am already frustrated that this ebook was not set up for localization. I don't know if this is a feature of the Kindle ebook format, but it should be. There are so many pages of non-English I must skim through to get to the next meaningful topic its absurd. Secondly, I can't see the images clearly for the pieces of the violin even when zooming in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Violin Lessons November 18, 2008
Format:Paperback
My daughter has been playing the violin in school for 3 1/2 years now. I was just recently able to get her into private lessons. Although the music is easy for her knowledge and level of playing, her private tutor wanted to strengthen her basic skills and techniques. The Suzukio book 1 contains all those basic techniques her tutor is trying to strenghten. She is thouroughly enjoying the book, and she is actually learning quite a bit from book 1. She is looking forward to moving on to the higher level books from Susukio. I recommend this book for beginner violin players, or for a child who may have some experience playing but needs to improve their basic techniques.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Start March 11, 2010
Format:Paperback
I've been playing the piano for a number of years now and decided I wanted to try my hand at the violin. It came more naturally to me than I think most because I played piano beforehand, but the Suzuki vol. 1 book is a great start. It starts you off with simple songs that progress to the other strings of the violin in a very natural way. The only thing I have to say otherwise is that if you have no musical background then you should have someone with musical experience at least guide you on how to use the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Revised edition worth it, but recycle the CD October 13, 2008
Format:Sheet music|Verified Purchase
Five stars for the revised edition book, two stars for the (too fast, too cheesy, and is that a synthesizer?) CD... I'll give the set four stars (rounding up). The revised edition appears to have the same pieces as the original, but in a larger print size that is a relief. In my opinion, it's worth getting the new book, but you should recycle the CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for a beginner March 20, 2008
Format:Sheet music|Verified Purchase
I bought this to help me learn to play the violin (I am in my 30's). I played the cello as a kid so I was already familiar with stringed instruments and note reading. This a progressive program that builds on itself. The book comes with a CD to help you hear how the songs should be played and that you can play along to.

I'd also recommend the "I Can Read Music" book for Violin.

What is the difference between the old version and the revised version?
Yes, all the music is the same. There are also some great additions--scales, arpeggios, finger exercises, etc. All in all, it's a great edition!
