Violin Star
A series for beginners – lots of fun pieces and illustrations to help develop musical skills

The repertoire is imaginatively tailored to develop specific techniques through an exciting range of musical styles – classical, traditional, pop, rock, jazz, world music – as well as original compositions written for the series.

The Student’s books contain the solo violin parts, along with colourful illustrations, activities and a playalong CD. The Accompaniment books include separate piano and violin accompaniments for every piece.

Key features of the series:

  • An approachable progression from beginner level to Grade 2
  • Playalong CDs with each Student’s book, which contain specially created instrumental arrangements to convey style and mood
  • Original compositions and arrangements by Edward Huws Jones

Edward Huws Jones is a composer, arranger and music educationalist. He studied at the University of York and the Royal Academy of Music, and went on to develop extensive experience as a string teacher. He has travelled widely to research fiddle-playing styles, and his original compositions are firmly established in educational repertoire.
