'The First Position Made Easy for Violinists' by Carol Anderson is part of the Scales Aren't Just a Fish Thing method of going in the back door of learning by tackling one 'bit' of information at a time. This teacher manual is the first in a series with the goal to 'make finger positions easy' . Each page focuses on one finger and the notes it plays. By embedding this information, the scary fingerboard becomes a little neighborhood of notes that you know quite well. Complete your study of the positions by making the information automatic. Play the card game 'Positions' when you buy the book 'Finger Positions Made Easy Card Games' and cut out the cards.
