Suzuki Method

The popular 'Suzuki Method' grew from the educational philosophy of Shin'ichi Suzuki (1898-1998), born in Nagoya, Japan. He was one of 12 children, and his father owned a violin factory. Shin'ichi began playing the violin at age 17. In his early 20s, he studied with violinist Karl Klingler in Germany.

Suzuki's "Mother Tongue" approach to teaching music builds on the principles of language acquisition. Those principles include an early beginning, listening, loving encouragement, parental support, constant repetition, learning with other children and then learning to read.

The Suzuki Method is based on Shinichi Suzuki's view that every child is born with ability, and that people are the product of their environment. According to Shinichi Suzuki, a world-renowned violinist and teacher, the greatest joy an adult can know comes from developing a child's potential so he/she can express all that is harmonious and best in human beings.

Suzuki lessons are taught in a private studio setting with additional group lessons. The student listens to the recordings and works with their Suzuki teacher to develop their potential as a musician and as a person.

Group Class

Group classes are important for students to build confidence and strong skills for stage performance. Besides position exercise, music theories will be taught using games to encourage active learning.

Private Lesson

Sometimes it can be difficult to ask questions in a group setting especially if a student is very shy. During the private one on one lesson, a student has the full attention of the instructor, which provides the opportunity for more in-depth study.

 

Curriculum

Students are taught using the "mother-tongue" approach. Each series of books for a particular instrument in the Suzuki Method is considered a Suzuki music school, such as the Suzuki Violin/Viola School.
