"The best string method books I've seen! Teachers will excel using this method and students will love the music. I highly recommend it."
~~Yuri Mazurkevich, Professor of Violin, Boston University
Extremely clear and beautifully organized, The ABCs of Violin and ABCs of Viola are a truly valuable resource for every teacher of students in the early stages of exploring the instrument. They are immensely helpful not only in laying the essential groundwork, but also in making the process enjoyable. ~~Dorothy DeLay, Professor of Violin, The Juilliard School

This book covers the sheet music and notation part of beginners violin lessons. It is easy to understand, and if you learn the first few lessons, then you can learn this whole book. It's that simple.
Plus, it's not boring and it's not a child-only book. This book is for anyone from reading age up to adults.
I highly recommend it with Five Stars.
I thought ABC's had the best learning curve for techniques and was organized really well in teaching violin skills and I really liked the eclectic songs that they used. ABC's also did a good job of picking the right songs to help teach each "lesson", for instance learning how to slur in the end of the book.
Suzuki was also a good book, but I could tell going through it that it was geared more towards having a teacher. It also had a steeper learning curve in the beginning.
Essential Elements did the best at explaining technique and fingerings but I didn't like the song choices as much as in ABC's or Suzuki. However I did find it to be better for self teaching than Suzuki.
P.S. If you get this book, definitely use the CD that it comes with. I can't stress enough how much it helps to hear the song being played to get a sense of the style and pace of the music. Best of luck in your violin endeavors!
Okay, I gave this 3 stars at first but the more I have worked with this book, the more I have liked it. Yes, you do still need to get over the initial hurdle of twinkle twinkle etc which to me are still painfully boring but there are also a few duet pieces to these thrown in which you can play the melody to as it plays the harmony or vice versa and to be honest you can start to sound more like "violin" with even such basics as mary had a little lamb, than you ever thought possible. I do also feel like the graded exercises before each song are actually quite helpful in getting you through the technical difficulties of the upcoming song. SO I have upraded this to 4 stars now. The end result - yes, give it more than just the first glance!
Simple, easy to follow, and written with a cheerful positive outlook by JTR. Only problem for me was that the tunes include childhood standards such as twinkle twinkle and mary had a little lamb which, while I understand the reason (the player knows these tunes internally already so when practicing you know instinctively if you are doing it wrong) it still makes for really dull playing as - who wants to play that? Who wants to have someone else hear you play that? While you will learn and it is progressive and logical, it is not till you get to the very last part of the book that you will start to learn songs you would consider 'performing' for interested friends and family.
