This method has been trialled with students aged between 7 and 9, over many years. Depending on the frequency and duration of lessons, timelines may vary, but essentially, students can play tunes quickly and experience success early on. Book 2 can be used as an individual tutor book for older students or following on from Book 1, which is an aurally-based and clef-free method for young beginners, using pizzicato to page 15 and bowing from D Major Scale onwards. Book 2 focuses on clef reading, using a “hand staff” on common strings, to allow the teacher to work in 3 clefs at a time. Once students are familiar with the letter name, string and number of fingers used for each note, adding the staff makes note-reading so easy! The approach is sequential, the print is clear and the pages uncluttered, allowing the teacher the freedom to add material and information as desired.
