Neumann, Eva-Maria: Geigenschule für Kinder - Band 1
Illustrated by Pia Eisenbarth - German Music Edition Award 2008
"... a wonderful instrument, but not the easiest to play"
In her new violin method, Eva-Maria Neumann introduces a concept that addresses every type of beginner and that is enormously varied and imaginative. "I am particularly interested in combining fantasy-filled, creative interpretation with a well-grounded technical basis." It is up to the teacher to determine which didactic and methodical steps should be taken. In addition to the great variety of material for one to four violins, often with piano accompaniment, there are questions, quizzes, puzzles and performance suggestions that lighten the pedagogical approach. One can truly feel the solid, motivating experience of the violin teacher behind Pia Eisenbarth's lovingly drawn illustrations and the author's lively texts: "Dear student – you want to play the violin. You've chosen a wonderful instrument, but it's not the easiest one to play."
