Violin Playtime, Book 3 arranged by Paul de Keyser. For Violin. Book; String - Violin Studies or Collection. Faber Edition. Elementary. 24 pages. Published by Faber Music (AP.12-0571508731).

With Violin Playtime, the beginner violinist can make music from the very first lessons. In the three books that make up the series, there are over a hundred little pieces, a treasure-trove of attractive tunes - some traditional, some by composers of the past, some newly composed. But this is more then just an easy anthology; the underlying approach is 'learn as you play', and a carefully devised ground plan of technical development makes it a manual in disguise, a tutor without text. This book takes you to Elementary level. Lively illustrations contribute visually to the excitement of learning the violin.
