The ABCs of Strings books are fascinating! They are well organized, well thought out, and a superb choice of music in every way. I highly recommend this method to my students, student teachers as well as my colleagues. In addition, Complete Technique for Violin is superb! It is well organized, and addresses all aspects of violin technique. I assign this to my students, and recommend this book and Complete Technique for Viola to my colleagues. Brava to Janice Tucker Rhoda!

Extremely clear and beautifully organized, The ABCs of Violin and ABCs of Viola are a truly valuable resource for every teacher of students in the early stages of exploring the instrument. They are immensely helpful not only in laying the essential groundwork, but also in making the process enjoyable.
