    Well done.

    I have been taking Violin lessons since February. I am using the Suzuki method. I am 49 and havent played since I was a child. I wanted to learn some folk songs. This is really well put ogether. The DVD is great. Doesnt teach you to hold a pencil like a bow (dont understand that.) Clear and simple instruction. Hes got it right. I had questions about when to keep fingers on the strings, pressure on the bow etc. He covered questions that starting arising while I was playing. Kinda like he read my mind. Though I have a teacher, its hard to remember everything to ask. The CD is fun to listen to. The book is not complicated and I know I will cover it end to end. Really pleased I purchased this item. ... (See Full Review)
