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

Book 4C: Wandering Off the Beaten Path - The concept of modulation is presented in an entertaining way in The Note People Story, Chapter 15. The circle of fifths is introduced, notes visit their "neighbors" next door and return home again. Fast finger exercises promote left hand agility. Double-stops and vibrato are continued. Further "Musical Math" exercises encourage good bow direction in the upper half and lower half. Bow exercises for beginning well, finger flexibility, string levels and clear tone are emphasized. Bow strokes include mixed bowings, slurs and staccato. The interval of the 5th is studied and leads to recognizing major and minor thirds and triads. Book 4C includes 9 duets and 9 piano accompaniments, as well as music by Poldini, Leopold Mozart, Schumann, W.A. Mozart, Bartk, J.S. Bach, Haydn, Purcell, C.P.E. Bach, Clementi, Handel, Rossini, Gilbert & Sullivan, Brahms, Dvorak and Telemann.
