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.

Suzuki Violin School, Volume 1 - Violin Part
The book is very helpful to both child and adult beginners of the violin. The songs to be learned are interspersed with short lessons and exercises that reinforce proper technique, and the markings to facilitate note reading are wonderful. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn violin!...

I so enjoy playing all of the duets from this book. The harmonies are beautiful and the level is not too difficult. It does go into 3rd position a little, but it can be played quite easily. Highly recommended!

For Students of Suzuki Trained Teachers
The Suzuki repertoire books are meant to be used by the parent of the young child, who ideally is studying violin with a Suzuki trained teacher. The books are not given to the child to read, but are used as reference by the child's parent. The books are used in...
