About the Suzuki Method:
Originally called the ‘Mother Tongue’ approach by Dr Suzuki, the Suzuki method is based on the approach of learning one’s own native language. Children learn to speak by listening to their parents and siblings speak, by copying and repeating, and by small corrections from their parents. At school age, children are fairly proficient in speaking their own language, and they then begin to learn to read and write.
Through the Suzuki method, children learn to play the piano by listening to beautiful music daily, by watching and hearing other students play, by copying and repeating what they learn in their lessons, and by small corrections from their parents. Once fairly proficient in playing the piano, and when cognitively ready, children begin to learn to read music.
