Book 1 focuses on finger and hand dexterity. It focuses on melody by using songs with words and parts of scales in which the melody is derived. Students start by playing one string and gradually add strings.
Book 1 also includes broken chords that teach finger placement that later will be used in full chords.
By the end of the book they will be playing four strings.
Allow four to six months for completion of Book 1.
