Kathy and David Blackwell have published over 60 books for young string players with Oxford University Press. These include the progressive repertoire and technique books of violin, viola and cello. In 2017 they received an ESTA UK award in recognition of exceptional services to string lessons, and later the same year an award for their significant contribution to music education from the Oxfordshire County Music Service. They have twice won the British Music Industries Association award for Best Education Publication.
The book comes with a CD, so that it can be played with accompaniment. Suitable for children from 5-6 years.
