    Book 1 Violin

    Posted by Joe Licari on 16th Jul 2021

    Allison has been a great inspiration for me in learning Violin as a beginner. From purchasing my first Violin , going through all 10 lessons, and purchasing the downloadable Book 1 for Violin. Allison has made it easy to learn quickly with all her great advise. Book 1 is easy to understand and all the print outs on finger placement has come in real handy. I’ve taped them all over my walls for easy access. Alisons review on Violins made me purchase my second violin as an up grade. The best violin tutor every. I highly recommend Alison for all violin beginners out there. You won’t be disappointed! Thank you!!!

    Alison's Teaching Technique and Song Book 1 Songs

    Posted by YAW LIN CHING on 14th May 2021

    As a beginner learning the violin from home, Alison's method is really easy to do and it is really progressive. As for the songs from Song Book 1, they are great. Not too easy and not too hard. These two added together results in amazing things!

    Alison's teaching method.

    Posted by Michael J Lawrence on 10th May 2021

    So here's the thing. I just spent six weeks going through Alison's first ten lessons and all the exercises. One to two hours a day squeaking and scratching on open strings, first finger, second finger and finally 3/4 finger notes. Finally, I got through the final exercise reasonably well and I bought this song book as my reward. Finally! Let's play some music. The point of all this is: I was able to sight read the first two pieces! I was totally surprised at how easily I was able to pick up the first two pieces. Not great - I still have a lot of work to do with intonation and string crossings. But, after going through the exercises and diligently following Alison's instructions, I was able to sight read and play two pieces on the violin in a recognizable form. Her method *works*. I am one happy student.

    Successful so far!

    Posted by Esther on 15th Apr 2021

    Started playing the violin in March and already able to play beautiful tunes and it actually sounds very nice. It maybe helps that I’m a guitarist and know how to read sheet music. Thanks for the online lessons so far.

    Excellent learning resource to accompany lessons

    Posted by Marianne on 15th Apr 2021

    This is a very useful book. Gradually takes you through the progressive lessons you have learnt and offers some easy, then more challenging pieces, even if you are not an absolute beginner, so keeps you interested. The pieces, very well stripped back, encourages the use of the little finger, something I have been avoiding as I find it very difficult! For me personally, I am trying to play 'folk' fiddle, ie, Irish, Scottish, old time American, so would appreciate some of these tunes, perhaps in a later book? Overall, would highly recommend as a good learning resource. Thank you Alison, for giving your precious time to help people like me.
