The extensive Colourstrings Violin ABC Book E of the popular Colourstrings violin tutors includes a wealth of repertoire for young violin players. The Book E uses the standard notation from the start and is suitable as an exercise and repertoire volume for all the violin students and pedagogues, also without Colourstrings method background. It concentrates on the left hand and makes conscious use of the various finger patterns and finger positions on the fingerboard. In the voluminous 176 pages of the Book E etudes and many kinds of exercises alternate with excerpts from the violin literature, folk music, duos, and trios. The musical grammar (theory) is taught through the instrument. This integration of theory and practice serves the pupil and all the pedagogues teaching privately without the support of solfege and theory classes. The book E also contains 21 performance pieces from 16 composers (piano accompaniment available as a separate edition, ISMN 9790550096424). Have a look on the sample pages for more information! The Colourstrings Violin ABC Book F (9790550095441) continues with the left hand and special fingering patterns, whereas Yellow Pages of the Colourstrings Violin School I, II & III concentrate on the right hand, rhythms, ornaments, and basic bowings.
