About Suzuki Method
The Suzuki Method is based on the principle that all children possess ability and that this ability can be developed and enhanced through a nurturing environment. All children learn to speak their own language with relative ease and if the same natural learning process is applied in teaching other skills, these can be acquired as successfully. Suzuki referred to the process as the Mother Tongue Method and to the whole system of pedagogy as Talent Education. The important elements of the Suzuki approach to instrumental teaching include the following:an early start (aged 3-4 is normal in most countries); the importance of listening to music; learning to play before learning to read; -the involvement of the parent; a nurturing and positive learning environment; a high standard of teaching by trained teachers; the importance of producing a good sound in a balanced and natural way; core repertoire, used by Suzuki students across the world; social interaction with other children. Suzuki students from all over the world can communicate through the language of music.

Good Beginner Book
Book 2 is a great starter book for adult learners. It includes a nice variety of pieces (some are really challenging) of short to medium length. Some beginning shifting to 2nd position towards the end of the book. Overall, a good series and very enjoyable to learn.

This is a good book for those who have finished level 1 and are ready to move on. the selections are not my favorite but they provide a challenge for beginners. Good 2nd position exercises for practice. Definately worth buying.
