How the student learns the left hand

Here's a quote from the book

"The reason you use the fingers of your Left Hand is to change the sounds that your violin makes. When you can change the sounds, you can play many different violin songs.

You must learn to play the simple songs first. Soon, you will find that you will be able to play the harder songs with the very fast notes. To be good, your Left Hand will have to be placed in a very special way, so you can reach the notes easily."
