Sassmannshaus Violin Book 1

Note reading is introduced from the beginning, and accidentals are explained in the easiest way in the first volume. By the end of the first book, many English children's songs using all fingers have been played and note values from whole to eighth notes have been introduced. Even the easiest exercises are underlaid with text so that melodies can be perceived as a whole.

Children playfully learn reliable violin technique at the earliest age.
For more than three decades the Sassmannshaus Tradition has been the household name for excellence in beginner violin methods in German-speaking countries. More than half a million students have successfully learned to play the violin using this publication.
The most successful Tried and Tested German Violin Method now available in English.
The best selling violin method that gave generations of European musicians their foundation is now available in English, with content and songs newly adapted for today's English speaking children.

"This method teaches all important violin skills very early. The kids progress much faster in the repertoire than with any other method."
- Chee-Yun

Sassmannshaus Violin Book 2

The second volume already presents classical violin duets. The child's knowledge and technique is expanded by dotted rhythms, sixteenth notes, and first double stops. And here is the most revolutionary aspect of the method: different finger patterns can be connected and combined to create any major and minor scale without the use of open strings. This creates the ability to practice scales in any position, often within the first year of playing! With this skill, songs learned in first position are easily transposed to other keys and higher position. Coupled with beginning shifting exercises this sets a foundation for an early virtuoso technique not available in any other method.

"The simplicity of the scale patterns that allows children to play in high positions almost from the beginning is just brilliant!"
- Gil Shaham

"The early emphasis on ensemble playing and the many duos in this method are so much fun for the kids. They pick up important chamber music skills right from the beginning!"
- Peter Winograd and Laurie Carney, American String Quartet

Sassmannhaus: the Authors
The original German violin method was first published in 1976. The author Egon Sassmannshaus is one of the most experienced and renowned violin pedagogues in Germany. For the new English edition his son Kurt Sassmannshaus worked as co-author and adapted his father's successful method for English-speaking children.
The combined knowledge and experience of father and son make the four volumes of the Sassmannshaus Tradition the most thoroughly researched and thought-through beginner violin method in the world.
The author Egon Sassmannshaus studied with the eminent German-American violinist Walter Schulze-Priska, who had been a student of Otokar Sevcik, the first truly systematic violin pedagogue. Egon Sassmannshaus' keen interest in child psychology as applied to the teaching of young children, couple with an impeccable background in technical violin expertise and pedagogy led him to publishing his violin method "Fruher Anfang auf der Geige" (The Sassmannshaus Tradition) in 1976. This method quickly became the most popular and best selling beginner method for violin teaching in German speaking countries. Egon Sassmannshaus' own students have excelled to become leading teachers and musicians all over Europe.
His son, the violinist Kurt Sassmannshaus, is currently chairman of the string department at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. A prize winning student of Igor Ozim and Dorothy DeLay, he had been a teaching associate to Dorothy DeLay for a quarter century. He published the pioneering website www.violinmasterclass.com in 2004. The UK's Strad Magazine calls him the "King of online violin tutorials". One of the most important violin teachers of his generation, Kurt Sassmannshaus' students have won major international competitions and occupy important positions in the music world across the globe. In 2005 he founded his own summer school for outstanding young string players, the Great Wall International Music Academy in Beijing, China.

Sassmannshaus Violin Book 4

The fourth volume introduces various positions as well as new bowing techniques. These are practiced in increasingly demanding classical duets. From here students can embark on the journey of standard repertoire - Concerti such as Vivaldi, Accolay etc. are now within reach.

What makes this violin method so special?

- The child- friendly and age-appropriate text underlying the music enables children to perceive melodies as a whole and to understand their singable qualities.
- Songs and scales in different positions are easily explained and mastered within the first year. This is an important advantage over methods that confine children to the first position for many years.
- Note reading is emphasised from the first lesson - children are brought up to become proficient sight-readers and play in chamber music ensembles as early as possible.
- In contrast to other beginning violin methods, the Sassmannshaus Tradition progresses swiftly by introducing advanced violin techniques in rudimentary form, such as shifting and varied bow strokes.
- The large print notes and text as well as many colorful illustrations are particularly child-friendly and very attractive to pre-school children and school children alike.
- The substantial volumes (64 pages for volumes 1 and 2, 72 pages for volumes 3 and 4) contain comprehensive material and carefully calibrated learning curves. They keep children curious and interested for many months and years.
