This colorful resource includes: pictures illustrating how to hold the violin and bow; ready to cut out “at-a-glance” checklists for key concepts; basic theory as it applies to fiddle playing; orientation for two important scales; basic rhythmic patterns for waltzes, jigs, and reels; and more.

“I love how you have explained everything simply and effectively! The artwork throughout keeps it light and fun. Nothing to be fearful of here – just excited to learn the fiddle!”–Natalie MacMaster
