    This is a great option for young beginners. It starts with just finger numbers to get the student playing without being overwhelmed by staff note reading. They have to rely on knowing the rhythm of the familiar tunes. The staff and notes are later introduced and some of the tunes...

    are repeated so the student can feel successful on their first attempts at reading the score. The titles set up the rhythms found in the pieces. the notes are slowly introduced string by string with fingering and names of notes judiciously included. If a student needs more practice on particular skill, there's many supplemental materials by the publisher available. The teacher book has accompaniments. I hope they come out with a CD that students can uses to practice with at home to reinforce intonation and rhythm.
