Violin Star combines simple steps for learning with good fun. Throughout there are amusing, even topical, illustrations by Mark Beech. For every piece there are two colourful audio tracks, one with violin and one without. Huws Jones takes care not to allow any additional technical challenges to creep in too soon. Hardly any technical information is written out and explained, giving the teacher the opportunity to support the learning in whichever way is appropriate. The accompaniments deserve special mention, Huws Jones has reproduced the formula that works so well for his folk and world music collections; as well as a piano part, each piece comes with a violin part for the teacher which creates a satisfying accompaniment, giving the student an impressive idea of what the violin can do. They are so well planned and each new technical and music element is so carefully integrated,it is hard to see any reason to look elsewhere. In short, this series is set to become a classic. - Music Teacher
