- Great for teachers
- Worth the high price tag
- Editor's Choice
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
This book is really good if you want to start on contemporary music early. Aimed at younger students, each technique is explained and followed by an accompanying study. There are then 6 further studies in which you can put your new skills into practice. The text is in French with good English translations but these sometimes run out which can cause confusion. Overall though, this will enable more players to feel comfortable in this style of playing earlier than perhaps they otherwise might.
