The violin is the most perfect instrument for all thinkable music styles, apart from classical music it has claimed it's place in jazz, pop, rock, country, world music...
Until now there has been no violin method that went beyond classical music.
Creative Violin brings this to a change.
Apart from classical music the student will taste many different styles of music and even learn to improvise, right from the start.
I see that this works very well, even the youngest beginners (6 years old!) learn how to close the book and start playing intuitive, along with the provided studio recorded accompaniments, right from the first lessons.

Creative Violin is a new method which even includes improvisation training right from the start.
