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."

The long awaited Sassmannshaus method Early Start on the Double Bass” is now here. At last students of the largest instrument in the string family can make use of this tried and tested method for beginners, developed by Egon Sassmannshaus for the other string instruments and applied here to the double bass by Holger Sassmannshaus and J. Peter Close. This method will meet the needs of the growing number of young bass students.

Early Start on the Double Bass” encompasses everything that one would expect from a Sassmannshaus method: an easy start, progression at a suitable rate, many cross-references to the other string instruments, songs and scales in different positions from early on, as well as many duets.

Original compositions by Boguslaw Furtok enrich the volumes.
