Jackaroo teaches fundamental string technique using only open strings and first finger, each piece introduces a new rhythmic or technical point, with useful suggestion boxes for the teacher. The addition of words and lively accompaniments by Pam Wedgwood mean that each piece can be sung through first. There’s even the chance to draw your own imaginary animals too, inspired by Drew Hillier’s wacky illustrations…how about a ‘Snivelling Skunkpanzee’? This book will inspire and inject a healthy dose of fun into violin lessons.
