Synopsis

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 and teacher's parts. Now with two CDs of performance and backing tracks. 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. Abracadabra Violin now also includes two CDs of performance and backing tracks, featuring selected orchestral backings.

Reviews

This new edition provides a splendid start to learning the violin...highly recommended for its carefully chosen range of pieces, from traditional songs from the shows, classical tunes and even the theme from Eastenders!'

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
