The fourth volume introduces various positions as well as new bowing techniques.
These are practiced in increasingly demanding classical duets. From here students can embark on the journey of standard repertoire – Concerti such as Vivaldi, Accolay etc. are now within reach.
The original German violin method was first published in 1976. The author Egon Sassmannshaus is one of the most experienced and renowned violin pedagogues in Germany .
For the new English edition his son Kurt Sassmannshaus worked as co-author and adapted his father’s successful method for English-speaking children.
The combined knowledge and experience of father and son make the four volumes of the Sassmannshaus Tradition the most thoroughly researched and thought-through beginner violin method in the world.
“…this is an imaginative set, and well worth acquiring.”
