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

    This book has a good selection of beginner level songs in mostly C position. A few go out of this C position. Two songs are in G position and the last song (Musette) is in d minor.

    Difficulty Level:
  • May 14, 2012 Good for forcus the sound

    It was great to read what Suzuki says, and having understanding this book works very well. I still like Alfred's to learn theory but this book contain pleasant songs and purely forcusing hearing. Good change from too much of book reading!

  • October 24, 2011 Great book for Beginner Pupils

    I'm not a Suzuki teacher however, I do find this book very useful for beginner pupils. The progress through the pieces is at just the right pace.Children love the challenge of the pieces and the fact that they can sound so good so soon.
