The Doflein books look appealing, but I would like to know more about them before I consider switching. What are your opinions?
It makes a good remedial for the student who has gone a little too far without a solid foundation. The book ends with a wonderful bit on half-position as well. I find that by the time a student finishes this book, their ability to read and play in second and third positions is quite strong. It just gets too difficult, too fast, for most students.
The myriad of duets, which range from Baroque to out-there 20th century stuff, get the student playing in harmony very early on. There is some simple double-stop work, clapping exercises, exercises in which a student has to write a musical "answer" to a musical "question," and more.
They learn navigate music that has repeats, DCs, etc. The first Doflein book moves very quickly and is not adapted to young beginners. However a preliminary volume is on the market at least in Europe which introduces elements a little slower. The layout is not appealing for young children either. I am no great fan of having to search for the notes through a myriad of pictures but I do think having large printed notes that are clearly visable is an essential for very young children.
Having said that once the elements have been mastered aside from the methos the Dofleins have published various volumes of collections for young violinists ,all researched and musicaly correct,so the young student can approach the repetoire with a professional integrity. I worked through the Doflein books , and found them a great help. They contain real music with preliminary exercises to get yo to work on a given pieces needs before you play it.
Also, there are interesting time signatures, and loads of duets. I use them to teach. I did start with Book I but I had done Suzuki book 1 and had been studying piano for a few years. Doflein also publishes collections of violin and piano pieces for the more advanced students.
My students are benefiting greatly from them. This discussion has been archived and is no longer accepting responses.

What do you use? How are they similar? Why is there a perceived distinction between the two? How does one draw from the other? Is there a transition from one to the other?
