Amazing book
Nez , 18.10.2020
This is the first book I got with my violin.
It starts with the very first basics and also covers on learning to read sheet music. The first songs are really enjoyable for learning, and the audio with the book is great.
Will definitely recommend this book to anyone picking up a violin for the first time!

Guter Kurs, aber nicht für den absoluten Anfänger!
25.03.2016
Als Autodidakt ( mit Vorkenntnissen im Bereich verschiedener Tasteninstrumente ) arbeitete ich bereits seit ca.12 Monaten mit anderen Violinschulen und begleitenden Notenmaterialien. Das o.a. Buch gibt einen guten und einfachen Überblick über die verschiedenen Richtungen der irischen Musik wie jigs, reels oder polka. Eine CD liegt nicht bei, die Stücke können jedoch von der Internetseite des Verlags heruntergeladen und auf CD gebrannt werden. Sie helfen sehr gut, sich in die typischen Rhythmen einzufinden. Die Begleitung ist vom Tempo her nicht zu schnell und es macht Freude mitzuspielen. Ein Anfänger wird jedoch den Fingersatz vermissen. Positiv ist, dass neu erarbeitete einzelne Noten auf der CD angespielt werden.
Fazit: Guter Einstieg in die irische Musik.

Übung macht den Meister
JayTi, 12.03.2019
Ich bin ein blutiger Anfänger an der Violine, habe jedoch aufgrund dessen, dass ich mehrere Jahre in einer Blaskapelle Posaune gespielt habe eine gute Grundkenntnis von Musik.

Die Struktur des Buches ist sehr gut gestaltet, neben immer wieder auftretenden Übungen gibt es sehr einfache und interessante Irishfolk Lieder zum spielen, die einem Motivation geben.
Es wird einem schnell klar, wie man eine Irish Fiddle spielt.

Die Songs und Übungen kann man sich im Internet Problemlos herunterladen und anhören, was vor allem bei komplizierte Stücken sehr vorteilhaft ist. Teilweise werden die Stücke auch von anderen Instrumenten begleitet.

Das Buch selber ist sehr robust.

Negativ ist lediglich, dass es komplett auf Englisch ist.

Fazit:
Ich bin zwar immer noch kein Profi, ich würde diese Buch aber jedem Anfänger oder Fortgeschrittenen weiter empfehlen.
Dieses Buch hat mir deutlich besser gefallen als das Voggenreiter Violin Basics, welches ich relativ schnell wieder aus der Hand gelegt habe.

Un ouvrage vraiment bien pensé
Marc Rémy, 04.01.2018
Cet ouvrage se propose d'apprendre le violon aux débutants complets au travers du répertoire irlandais.
Rédigé en langue anglaise, un niveau scolaire dans cette langue suffit (ou vous fera faire des progrès en anglais!). Cet ouvrage utilise les partitions et le solfège, en vous y accompagnant pas à pas, aucun pré-requis nécessaire.
Les exercices et morceaux très progressifs et bien choisis existent en mp3 facilement téléchargeables.
Néanmoins, il me semble que l'accompagnement de cette méthode par un musicien ou un professeur sera très utile et permettra des progrès plus rapides et une meilleure compréhension. Si vous avez déjà des connaissances en musique et une certaine pratique instrumentale, elles seront bénéfiques.
