This book is excellent! It is an invaluable collection of beautiful arrangements that is both fun to play and forces students to play with proper left hand position. I have been teaching for 18 years and this book is required for all of my Suzuki Book 2 students. The pieces are leveled so a Book 2 student can start very comfortably at the beginning and move along fairly quickly for the first several pieces to get the basics of double stops down. By the end of the book the pieces are more advanced, so it's a book that can grow with the students for a long time. I very highly recommend it!
