Additionally, consort music that links directly to the progress made by the student throughout the book can be found at the end of each chapter.

“Jacqui Robertson-Wade’s Viol Player series is the fruit of years of thoughtful teaching of young musicians in her flourishing community music programs in Warwickshire. It offers a wealth of valuable materials to aid teacher and student in finding accomplishment and joy in the process of learning to play the viol. The books are lavishly produced, with glossy four-color printing on the covers and abundant black and white illustrations for both instruction and amusement. The authors’ sense of humour, joy and enthusiasm for the project is evident on very page. These are valuable books, and ones that I expect to use in my own teaching that I would gladly recommend to others.”
