Book 2 of the comprehensive String Method from Hal Leonard Publishing.
NOTE: Essential Elements 2000 and Essential Elements are the same book with the same contents. The publisher removed "2000" from the title but nothing else changed in the book.
Essential Elements for Strings offers beginning students sound pedagogy and engaging music, all carefully paced to successfully start young players on their musical journey. EE features both familiar songs and specially designed exercises, created and arranged for the classroom in a unison-learning environment, as well as instrument-specific exercises to focus each student on the unique characteristics of their own instrument. EE provides both teachers and students with a wealth of materials to develop total musicianship, even at the beginning stages.
Essential Elements now includes Essential Elements Interactive (EEi), the ultimate online music education resource.
