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./p

  • December 07, 2013 Not Easy, Sometimes Hard, But Oh So Worth It

    I have to say, I agree with the other reviewers. I started Suzuki violin when I was almost seven. This is my tenth year playing. I, like everyone, have gone through rough spots, where mom and child argued about practicing, dad said he was wasting his money, and it seemed...

    like a sentence to 10 years of D.S. without coda. But I stuck with it, and I had my book 7 graduation recital this afternoon! The most important thing about keeping it up is making the decision to not quit no matter what. I had a really hard time in book 3: the majority of songs in the 3rd book are dances, so they have a ton of repeats (and, as such, last for an eternity), so it wasn't a lot of fun to practice. And kid no practice, mom not happy. But my mom decided that I was going to stick with it and now, about six years later, I have some beginner students of my own and play in a community orchestra. If you are considering Suzuki method, please don't hesitate. It's not easy, sometimes hard, but so so worth it.

  • February 29, 2012 Revised edition

    Like some of the features in the revised edition, but not the addition of the fourth finger so early on. Still, I cannot imagine using another method for beginning string players!

  • January 20, 2012 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...

  • November 25, 2011 Favorite Book

    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!

    Difficulty Level:
  • February 01, 2010 THE reference for beginning Suzuki study

    As the other reviewer says, this book is designed for the very beginning student of Suzuki method violin. A child can start as young as 3, obviously doesn't know how to read yet. This book is reference for the parent, while the child happily learns by ear and by...

    practicing measures at home under parent's guidance, then larger parts then entire pieces. Perfect book for what it is designed to do.
