At this time of year, music publishers bring out their new publications. Most of them are single books of repertoire - few are a complete new series of books, let alone a new tutor book.
This week I have added a brand new violin tutor series called Violin Playing to the website; it takes students from the very beginning to grade 8 standard, which is most unusual. There are 5 books:
- Book 1 - preparatory/initial grade
Book 2 - grades 1 to 2
Book 3 - grades 3 and 4
Book 4 - grades 5, 6 and part of 7
Book 5 - grades 7 and 8
On the subject of the postal strike, while there are some delays to post to and from VS Music Supplies, they don't seem to be long delays, with post taking a day or two longer than it should in most cases. Let's hope it continues that way.
