Violin beginner book on the iPad, first of its kind?

April 27, 2012 at 12:09 AM

After 8 exhausting months, Vamoosh beginner book for violin is finally up on the App Store. Hopefully this will empower parents when helping their children practise. Clear demonstrations and great material will hopefully motivate, if not remove any excuse for not understanding what they were supposed to do. There's even an option to film yourself playing, either for granny's and friends' pleasure, or for feedback from your teacher. No more excuses!

What I'd like is an iPad app that can display a hyperlinked (indexed) archive of PDF files so that I can put all my fake books and all my scanned violin music on it. Can this be done? This would make me buy an iPad.

The iPad has this marvelous thing called a reader (so doesn the iPhone), whereby you can download scores from imslp and read them like a book on the iPad. Great for studying scores while traveling.
