The Suzuki really aren't for those who don't have a teacher - they're written with only minimal guidance that will make no sense at all for a beginner. The Essential Elements series are much more suited for beginners with lots of tips and instruction for those who are learning without a teacher.


I'm working through Suzuki Book 1 with Loralyn Staples at Red Desert Violin and I couldn't have done it without her guidance. There are many, many sources on the web, including the great videos right here on Fiddlerman, so look around until you find something that suits your learning style.

I bought book 1 & 2 not just because I like the songs in them but because it was a required book for my daughter. i guess I will learn along with her.

I played through several of the Suzuki books (with a teacher) years ago, and I was pleased that my daughter's teacher is using book 1 for her beginning class as well. I love that it really seems to start you off with great music right away.
