Sassmannshaus - Early String Ensemble Playing - String Quartet - Barereiter
This collection of works is an age-appropriate introduction to chamber music for the very young age group. Children who have had lessons for one or two years will find charming polyphonic pieces with manageable rhythms. They will learn to project their own individual musical line by staying in a common meter with their peers. The rhythms of the voices are generally similar or equal to allow the young musicians to have successful first ensemble experiences. We trust this book will inspire new generations of young string players who are taking their first steps towards a life-long journey into the amazing and beautiful realm of string chamber music.

The Fastest Possible Start for the Beginning Violinist!
The reason for the effectiveness of the Early Start on the Violin method is because it respects the student: Techniques that may be considered too advanced to be used in other early development methods are introduced early in the Sassmannshaus method; vibrato, shifting into high positions, dotted rhythms, double-stops, quickly become second nature to the young student, removing the intimidation factor that often gets in the way of learning when introduced later.
Egon Sassmannshaus, one of the most renowned violin teachers in Germany, introduced the method series more than four decades ago. It quickly grew in popularity, with over half a million European students having using it. Almost 10 years ago, world renowned violin pedagogue Kurt Sassmannshaus, son of Egon, introduced the English language edition of the method, and it has been equally popular in North America.
