The New Tune A Day Method is a re-release of C. Paul Herfurth’s popular method A Tune a Day (released 1930). The method has been updated with modern technique and music, but it retains the gentle pace and attention to detail that made the original method so successful.  Also new is an accompaniment CD and an optional dvd with performance videos and more.



Description

Since it first appeared in the 1930s, the concise, clear content of the best-selling A Tune a Day series has revolutionized music-making in the classroom and the home. Now, for the first time, C. Paul Herfurth’s original books have been completely rewritten with new music and the latest in instrument technique for a new generation of musicians. A New Tune a Day books have the same logical, gentle pace, and keen attention to detail, but with a host of innovations: the inclusion of an audio CD with actual performances and backing tracks will make practice even more fun and exciting, and the explanatory diagrams and photographs will help the student to achieve the perfect technique and tone. The DVD shows you the basics from how to set up your instrument to playing your first notes. It takes you through the first few pages of the book ensuring you get off to a good start. Plus, excellent advice and tips from a professional player. Each book contains: advice on audio equipment * instructions for effective technique and comfortable posture * explanatory section on reading music * easy-to-follow lessons on clear, uncluttered pages * an audio CD with a virtuoso performance, backing tracks and audio examples * great music including duets and rounds * tests to check progress and comprehension * useful pull-out chart giving all first position fingerings * and a DVD, authored for Zone 0, to help you get started on your instrument.

    I like this book for teaching private lessons. It has duets for the teacher and the notes are big and easy to read with plenty of white space. Some of the other orchestra books cram so much on one page, it is difficult to read. I wish buying it without the CD was an option to save costs. Most of my students don’t listen to the CD. I wish they would, but they don’t. Perhaps CD players are just not as accessible as they were a few years ago.

    This book has a ton of short little tunes and the CD in the book is great. I don’t think I’ll buy a book any more without an accompanying CD – such a great idea. You just can’t learn songs without hearing them first. The tunes are very easy and very short but they are probably a good way to familiarize yourself with tunes that you might want to play as well as scales (great fingering diagrams). The tunes are short. Really short. And the tunes are super easy. I think I could have played all of them when I was an absolute beginner. Anyway. I wish I would have bought it when I was a very beginner. Would have been good variety. Consider it if you are looking for some variety in easy beginning songs.

    I think this is a good book the only problem I saw is that the instructions on how to tune was little to none. I did not know it at first but tuning a violin is harder than I thought, and it took a bit of internet research to figure it out. It is a good instructional book, but lacks the detailed tuning instructions, and I still don’t think my violin is tuned correctly. lol
