Continued implementation of the philosophy of Zoltán Kodály in an approach to beginning violin study based on American folk songs. Continues from Books One through Three.
The books are parallel and can be used in beginning ensembles. Some modifications are included in the cello book to accommodate technical aspects of that instrument.
Experience with this version suggested that waiting until Book Five to introduce the minor keys was less effective. The Revised Books Four and Five will each contain major and relative minor keys. Book Four: C, a, G, e, D, b, F, d, Bb and g. Book Five: A, f#, E, c#, Eb, c, Ab and f. These older versions will be on sale only while supplies last.
