The book then gives an introduction to violin playing where the equipment and accessories required are discussed. Since there are many things to take into consideration when buying a violin, the whole of section 2 is therefore dedicated on choosing a violin.

The various types of music that can be played on the violin are also discussed, after which the book concludes by highlighting the various mistakes to avoid when you want to become a successful violinist.
