Hi I am currently studying a Bachelor of Music at Monash Uni. I am familiar with the Suzuki method and have been through some AMEB books as well. I am currently exploring different methods such as ABRSM to broaden my scope as I want to find what is suitable to teach each individual.
I have taught a 7 year old so far who started learning 'tricks to tunes' with a previous teacher. This appears to be a good book to start off learning the violin with if you are not familiar with western music notation for any instrument.
