Just What I Needed

My lockdown project was to learn to play the Vielle. But where to start? As a violin player already, this short, well-written book was absolutely perfect for me. Everything was clearly explained, including essentials such as tunings, playing position and bow hold, but without unnecessary detail to wade through (as I had found when previously trawling the Internet). There are 30 pieces to play, with written notation and an easy audio link to hear them being performed. The book is a quick read, but one, because of the music, I will go back to many times. It is just what I needed. Thank you.
