Abracadabra Violin (Pupil's book): The Way to Learn Through Songs and Tunes by Peter Davey


Abracadabra Violin (Pupil's book): The Way to Learn Through Songs and Tunes by Peter Davey

A fresh, new edition of this popular Violin tutor, which can be used with the Viola, Cello and Double Bass books for group lessons or mixed ensemble performances. Progressively graded in 20 learning steps, with concise theory explanations, duets, teacher's parts and a mixture of classical, traditional and popular pieces. Now in a third edition, Abracadabra Violin has a fresh and contemporary new look and is the perfect book for pupil and teacher. This title offers an identical selection of repertoire to the other books in the Abracadabra Strings series, so they can be used in any combination for group or whole class lessons and mixed ensemble performances. Used alone, they remain ideal for individual tuition. With tunes you know and want to play, carefully graded in 20 learning steps, this new edition of the popular tutor also includes duets, trios and teacher's parts. Clear fingering and bowing diagrams and concise theory explanations help to teach the fundamentals of the instrument, and each new technical aspect is reinforced by several pieces using that particular technique.
