What is the Suzuki
More than fifty years ago, Japanese violinist Shinichi
Suzuki realized the implications of the fact that
children the world over learn to speak their native
language with ease. He began to apply to the basic
principles of language acquisition to the learning of
music, and called his method the mother-tongue
approach. The ideas of parent involvement, loving
encouragement, a musical environment, and developing
the whole child are some of the special features of
the Suzuki approach.
Who can do Suzuki?
The Suzuki Program is open to students age 3 and up in
cello, flute, viola, and violin, although it is never
too late to start (even some adults get hooked and
decide to take lessons).
