The Japanese violinist, Dr. Shinichi Suzuki, developed a teaching model he called the mother-tongue method.  The method stemmed from his recognition that virtually all children learn to speak their native language.

Special Features of the Suzuki Method:

  • Parent Involvement
  • Early Beginning
  • Listening
  • Repetition
  • Learning with other children
  • Encouragement
  • Graded Repertoire
  • Delayed reading
  • Whole Person Approach
