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 4D: More Adventures on the Ascent - The Chromatic Scale is introduced and presented in a variety of challenging pieces. Spiccato is the new bow technique learned, as well as dotted rhythms in various combinations. Vibrato stresses finger to finger continuity in legato playing. Fun violin antics, such as left hand pizzicato, harmonics, glissando, pizz to arco switching, etc., are added for spice. Double-stops, rhythmic exercises, ties, solfege and note-writing continue. Included in this book are 6 duets, 13 piano accompaniments, and music by W.A. Mozart, Mendelssohn, Waldteufel, Offenbach, Bach, Shostakovich, Verdi, Gossec, Paganini, Boccherini, Bartók, Brahms, etc.
