Special ABCs of Strings Audio CDs
Printable PDF Directions


Dear String Players,

The special Audio CD contains all the performance pieces for the particular book you are using.
The ABCs of Violin for the Absolute Beginner, Book 1
The ABCs of Violin for the Intermediate, Book 2
The ABCs of Cello for the Absolute Beginner, Book 1

Directions for ABCs of Violin Book 3 and ABCs of Cello Book 2

Each CD also contains all the piano accompaniment tracks as Audio and printable PDFs of the piano accompaniments.

Here are the Printable PDF Directions:

1) Insert the CD disk in your computer. An Autoplay popup with several categories appears.
2) At the very top a Carl Fischer Music logo appears, and the phrase:
"DVD Drive (E:) ABCs of Violin - Book 1" (or Violin Bk 2, or Cello Bk 1)
3) Below the phrase "Run Enhanced Content" you will see another Carl Fischer Music logo.

Just to the right of this Carl Fischer logo, Double Click on "Run AutoRun.exec"

It takes a few seconds to download ones of these publications:
The ABCs of Violin Easy Piano Accompaniment for Book 1
The ABCs of Violin Easy Piano Accompaniment for Book 2
The ABCs of Cello Easy Piano Accompaniment for Book 1


PLEASE NOTE: Each computer's system will be slightly different, so the directions may need to be altered a little.

4) Go to File, Click on Print.
There are 1-40 pages in The ABCs of Violin Easy Piano Accompaniment for Book 1, for example. It takes 10 minutes to load the files to print the entire book, but you may print individual page selections.

There are Audio CD options listed after that. My students use Windows Media Player to listen to the performance tracks and to play along with the piano accompaniment tracks. The Table of Contents in the beginning of each book lists all the titles and tracks.

Please write to me if you have any further questions or comments about these special CDs.

Best wishes,
