   introducing the positions
Some good ideas are possible when access to a good teacher, but it is not always possible to explain the principles of positional changes in violin music.

For a newbie, this was very beneficial. It was very easy to use and exercises do not take that long to complete.

   A must have for a learning violinist
Update 29-10-17 : My son is almost done with the book, he has 2 major scales, it is not the only book he starts, he has started vol.2 and this is the 3rd time the teacher makes him revised parts of it, now my son thinks it is super easy, even the vol.2 is easy for him. Now actually the exercises sound really nice My son started this book a year ago, he is almost 10 and he has been learning violin with the same teacher for nearly 3 years. If my son were the one reviewing, he would give 1 star because of the difficulty and practice that this book requires. I help my sons in his daily practice and I can say that this book helped him to hold his 1st position with much ease and also helped him make his left thumb looser, which was very tense while playing the violin. The swaying exercises in this book are great for making you more comfortable on the violin and loose. i highly recommend this book in your violin learning, but after you learn your first position completely.

   Good for what it is
This book is well written and provides sufficient exercises for practicing shifting and positions. The exercises are not very melody oriented, but serve their purpose very well.

   Surprisingly interesting
At first, I planned to put this away until I gather the energy to endure the necessary but tedious exercises. After skimming through it, however, I plan to incorporate it as much as I can into daily practice. It was presented clearly and relatively simple to follow.

   Great book for learning positions
I love this book for myself and teach the different positions.

   Very educational
More advanced than Suzuki books, but it definitely helped me to be where I wanted to be. It is a bit difficult at first, but gets better once you're consistent!
