    No good.

    By Alan Poltorak

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Hal Leonard Essential Elements For Strings - Violin Book 1 With EEi (Book/CD-ROM):

    This book sucks. I just bought my first violin and ordered this book with it because of all the good reviews. I regret doing so. The book starts right away with learning how to play and read notes. It says nothing about setting up your violin, how to hold it (other than a useless drawing), how to string your violin, how to tune it, etc. Rather than giving you the basics themselves, they say things like "Wait quietly while your teacher tunes your violin." instead of actually telling you how to do it yourself. I don't take lessons, so that doesn't apply to me. How-to-play starter books like these should be good enough to let you start to play an instrument on your own, without the help of a teacher, but this one does not. Therefore, I am learning to play this instrument on my own, I don't even use the book. It's a good thing I have prior knowledge about music. If you are just starting out on violin and know nothing about it, I highly suggest looking for another book.

    DVD doesn't work

    By Mark Van Hise

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Hal Leonard Essential Elements For Strings - Violin Book 1 With EEi (Book/CD-ROM):

    (ditto either of the above)
    The DVD doesn't work. That was disappointing. The lessons in the book seem effective but I've still only just begun.
    I like the book on it's own. But the DVD didn't work

    Incredible value

    By SchecterFan47

    from Roanoke, VA

    Comments about Hal Leonard Essential Elements For Strings - Violin Book 1 With EEi (Book/CD-ROM):

    I can't tell you what an incredible value this book is. The DVD has great software for practicing and even has a listening library of MP3. The CD songs can be played on a standard CD player or slowed down on your PC. I have about 50 guitar/bass/harmonica books and nothing compares to this book. I'm going to look at the other Essential books now.
