I bought this book for my daughter who has been playing the violin for a year. I wanted her to play one or two Christmas carols at Christmas but we were very disappointed. Some notes she didn't know and some titles are even badly printed.
Nice violin, but strings needed an expert to re-thread as one was on the wrong peg. Unable to do this myself so took it to a violinist to set it up and tune it before giving it to my 4 year old granddaughter. She loves it.
Good but the font is too small for children and for some adults. I love the selection of songs, but my four years old cannot no read it comfortable because the font is kind of small. I will save this book until she is a little older and can read a smaller font without forcing too much her eyes. She would love to play "arroz con leche". I wish the author would consider making an edition with larger font for more children and adults can enjoy playing this book.
This is a fun book for kids who play violin but it doesn't focus on anyone one type of song and I think that hurts it. It has some christmas, classical, nursery rhymes even some music from other countries we had never heard before. I would have liked to seen more nursery rhymes and folk music.
Since it didn't list the songs, I will list them here: Aloutte Amazing Grace America the Beautiful Arroz Con Leche Aserrin, Aserran Aura Lee Cielito Lindo For He's a Jolly Good Fellow Frere Jacquees Go Tell Aunty Rhody Good Morning to All Greensleeves Jingle Bells La Cucaracha La Donna e Mobile Las Manaitas London Bridge is Falling Down Mary Had a Little Lamb Menuettt in G My Bonnie Lies over the Ocean Ode an die Freude Oh Susanna Old Macdonald Had a Farm Row Row Your Boat Scarborough Fair Stile Nacht, heilige Nacht Sur le Pont d'Avignon The House of the Rising Sun The Star-Spangled Banner Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Un Elefante Se Balanceaba We Wish You A Merry Christmas When Johnny Comes Marching Home When the Saints Go Marching In Wiegenlied Yankee Doodle
I bought this book for myself and I am not a kid. I decided to start playing the violin after a 50 year break and need some easy but interesting music. I like this book as it is more than just a collection of familiar songs but also has teaching tips which I have found helpful.
