Méthode Élémentaire D'Alto - Vol.2 is the second book of a method by Henri and Renée Benoit for beginners. This volume, quite progressive, follows on the first one and is aimed to upper beginners.
Written in C key, this volume starts with some applications of what was learnt in the first book: some exercises on the use of the bow. It also includes some aspects such as chromaticisms, the technique of the staccato and the arpeggios among others. It also contains famous tunes arranged for the level of the book to start playing music.
