Introduce your child to the beginning basics of playing the viola. Year 1 introduces first position on the viola, basic bow strokes, dynamics, and other techniques. Photographs and diagrams illustrate how to hold the instrument, parts of the instrument, and correct fingering. Both you and your child can see what correct technique looks like. With this step-by-step process, learning the notes will be clear and fun. Each section will teach a different fingering in first position and will provide several different tunes to practice that fingering, helping your child achieve confidence. When a new fingering is learned, your child will also learn either a new bow technique or rhythm. How fun to know he is increasing in his abilities! Even if your child is completely unfamiliar with his instrument this book will give him the foundation he needs for exceling on his instrument. Track A is offered for students grades 4-12 without any musical background. It can be purchased or leased through Abeka Academy enrollment.
