Note Reading School for Violinists, Vol. 1


Step by step, students will be introduced to notes on all four strings, basic rhythms, and time signatures. This book contains opportunities for chanting rhythms, singing, playing the notations on the violin and gradually working towards using these skills in a musical context with charming, beloved melodies. This resource is filled with rewards such as rhythm canons, violin duets, select piano accompaniments, worksheets, and much more.

These materials are aimed at students who learned to play violin by ear and are ready to aquire basic music reading skills. The book is divided into 22 steps.

Activities in each step
In each step, fundamentals of musical notation are presented along with practice suggestions.
- Rhythm Exercises
- Pitch Exercises
- Duet or Canon

Playing the duets and canons together, solo or in a group, is the highlight of each chapter and increases the motivation to learn to read music. It also opens up the opportunity to learn new pieces and to teach early chamber music and ensemble skills.
