The Sassmannshaus Tradition for viola is now available in English and has been adapted, both in content and songs, for today's English speaking children.

Note reading is emphasized from the first lesson, encouraging ensemble playing from the very beginning.
Songs and scales in different positions can be easily mastered within the first year.
Advanced viola techniques such as varied bow strokes and shifting are introduced in a basic form.
