When I purchased the book, I didn’t realize how simple the music would be. Even so, I really enjoyed playing through the whole book. It seems to be lacking in dynamic notations, and I feel they could have done more with the notation itself, adding more slurs where needed. Very plain, but still fun. I’d say a middle schooler could perform everything in there. Everything is pretty much in first position with the exception of a few short parts in third position that would be easily doable for someone of a middle schooler’s skill level.
but it was still a very nice addition to my sheet music

I wish it had more of the songs inside, but it was still a very nice addition to my sheet music!
Fun to play

I’m in my late 20s and I always wanted to play the violin, so 6 months ago, I bought one and began to teach myself using the Essential Elements 2000 series. I’ve been looking for music books to help introduce some variety into my everyday practice routine. I love the music from The Phantom of the Opera, which helps, because I know what the songs should sound like! It stays mostly in 1st position; a few notes here and there go above (which I haven’t gotten to yet), but the notes are easy enough to figure out how to play and it doesn’t happen too often. If you want to play along with the movie soundtrack, you won’t get very far- the songs are in a different key, so you can’t effetively play with it.
Great for Beginners!

I recently began violin lessons, after years of playing the piano and guitar. The other reviewers are right: this is definitely easy violin music. Most of the songs are in first position, and in the basic keys. Although it may be remedial to some players, t was absolutely perfect for me. It’s great to supplement what I’m learning in my lessons, and the songs sound beautiful even with my inexperienced playing.

Just as expected!
What I’d hoped for

These arrangements are approachable while still maintaining the recognizable melody from the musical. Do be aware that the songs vary in difficulty and several require notes in third position in beyond. I’ve been playing for a few months and can play several while others remain beyond my ability. It really does help to have songs I enjoy and am familiar with, so that I know when I’m off with the fingering or bowing.

Well, I’m no expert but I was expecting a little more challenging sheet.
