My son has finished preschool this year, and starting next term he will be home schooled. I am planning on teaching him the violin, but I am in need on some advice for method books. I seem to remember starting out on the green String Builders book by Applebaum ages ago when I was in elementary school. My personal experience was public school orchestra from about the 4th grade through high school with some community orchestra experience. In high school I switched from violin to viola. I've heard a little about All for String and Essential Elements, but no experience with them. What are your take on these methods and what you recommend in place of/complementary to these?
Hello to all again! My daughter is four and shall start to take violin lessons soon. I am looking for shoulder rest for her, but cannot decide on which one to get: bon musica or play on air junior I have Bon Musica for myself and like it, but am afraid that it might be too "rigid" for the violin movement on her shoulder sine she just starts. Can you recommend a shoulder rest for a young beginner? Many thanks in advance! miles
