"Kerstin Wartberg is a leading force in Europe for teaching the violin to children. She has dedicated the last years to producing new materials for the elementary levels of string playing. Her pieces and etudes are pedagogically invaluable, engaging and all supported by lively accompaniments. Her latest two volumes are My First Technique Book and My Second Technique Book. I highly recommend to every violin teacher who teaches beginners."
