The publication of the four violin books in 2008 in a fully adapted English version has been a big success. On the back of this success story Bärenreiter published the four books for cello in 2009 and the four books for viola in 2010 in an adapted version for today’s English speaking children.
Even before they reach school age, many children are enchanted by the warm sound of the viola. Instruments are availabe in a range of different sizes making it possible to play the viola at a young age. The tried and tested principles of the Sassmannshaus violin and cello methods have been maintained here; with small adjustments for the viola the method offers the same sure steps to early musical and technical progress.
