About This Item

Renowned pedagogue Shirley Givens’ series for beginningviolinists is widely respected for its clear, child-friendly format, and itssensible progression through techniques. There are lots of pictures, fun and familiar songs, and even pages forcoloring!  Ms. Givens uses a movableDo” system to teach pitch relationships and good intonation.  Recommended for very young children.

Book 4A
, Climbing the Great Mount Major, is the beginning of a scale game continuing through all 6 Green Books. In the course of the game, the student will learn the structure of the Major and Relative minor (melodic & harmonic) scales. Playing in 1st, 2nd and 3rd positions with agility exercises and etudes, the left hand prepares for actual shifting between positions. Special features of Book 4A are vibrato duets, tone control exercises, bow strokes (legato, staccato, portato, martelé), conducting in 5/8 and 3/8 time, continuation of pitch training with singing, and solfege hand signals. The technique of playing 3- and 4- string chords (both pizzicato and arco) also helps the student hear the underlying harmonies. This book includes 8 duets, 6 piano accompaniments, music by Clementi, Gounod, Telemann, Cherubini, Tchaikovsky, Gilbert & Sullivan, Schumann, Daquin, and various fiddle tune jigs and hornpipes.
