      Comments about Carl Fischer The ABCs of Violin for the Absolue Beginner DVD:

      I have used this violin instructional DVD everyday to go over the beginning rudiments of violin playing. I have had no prior experience playing the violin so needed basic details and can't believe everything I have been able to do. The teacher is pleasant and enthusiastic. I'd recommend it to adults and children wanting to begin playing violin.
