Sassmannshaus feed-back?

January 19, 2013 at 06:49 AM · I am looking for feedback on the violin books of Sassmannshaus.

If you have used it/are using it;

how does it compare to other methods:

enough excursuses? enough tunes, for younger or older kids?

how much time do your students spend on one book?

scales and technique in r excluded?

how fast does it move on from one key to another?

is book one organized by keys, finger patterns, or strings?

when are slurs introduced?


I don't have a music store nearby, so no possibility to browse there. Therefore I turn to this blog.

Thank you!

Not all of us have the luxury of a well stocked music store nearby and these videos allow you to have a sneak peak of the book. I use this method book as a supplemental method book to Suzuki and Solos for Young Violinists. I enjoy this book because it teaches notereading at an early age. The students love it because of the pictures:)

Happy Practicing!
