About This Item

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
