Janice Tucker Rhoda's innovative blend of traditional and Suzuki approaches to Violin pedagogy have had a great effect on early string education. For the "Millennium Edition" of Book 1, Dan Fox was commissioned to provide pianistic accompaniments. The book contains thirty-four pieces. The first 28 pieces have the melody in the right hand of the piano part to aid in proper ear training for the violinist, who needs to learn to match the pitches of the violin to the piano melody line. The last six pieces feature more traditionalaccompaniments that do not duplicate the solo part.The ABCs of Violin is a series of method books that are designed to be fun as well as educational and include classical and popular melodies students and teachers will know and love. These piano accompaniments are a great enhancement to the pleasure and the learning that The ABCs of Violin intends to produce.
