The original German violin method was first published in 1976. The author Egon Sassmannshaus was one of the most experienced and renowned violin pedagogues in Germany. For the English edition his son Kurt Sassmannshaus worked as co-author and adapted his father’s successful method for English-speaking children.
The combined knowledge and experience of father and son make the four volumes of The Sassmannshaus Tradition the most thoroughly researched and thought-through beginner violin method in the world.
“This method teaches all important violin skills very early. The kids progress much faster in the repertoire than with any other method.” (Chee-Yun)
