REVIEW VIDEOS

Students will exercise good violin technique habits from day one!

With 70 pages of exercises, smiley stickers for added motivation, 115 audio files on the included CD, and online access to videos, printable piano accompaniment PDFs, and more, My First Technique Book will set a solid technical foundation for any beginning student.

Kerstin Wartberg, internationally acclaimed Suzuki pedagogue and author of the popular Step-By-Step practice series, is now introducing two prequels to her groundbreaking Enjoying Violin Technique book. My First Technique Book and My Second Technique book offer the same format and brilliance of exercises, but with content that is both accessible and motivational for the beginning violinist!

Contents are clearly categorized and include:
 

  • Fitness Training for the Fourth Finger (pizzicato and harmonics)
  • Finger-Dances (intonation exercise, dropping and lifting fingers)
  • Roller-Coaster Songs (fluency exercises)
  • Exercises with Fourths (arm control and left-hand training)
  • Systematic Whole-Bow Training
  • One & Two Octave Scales (first position)
  • One & Two Octave Arpeggios (first position)
  • Bowing Variations

Sample Page and Audio Clip #1: Intensive preparation for and development of the most important finger patterns in first position.

Sample Page and Audio Clip #2: Here, the second finger pattern will be practiced at varied tempo and on different strings.

Sample Page and Audio Clip #3: Familiarization with three different dynamic levels and playing on three different points of contact.


"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."


- Mimi Zweig, Violin Professor and Teacher

No CD, no customer support or service

It was advertised as having a cd, it still is advertised that way. It doesn’t come with a cd, and the support from Shar has been awful, less than no help at all.
