Suzuki Overview

Suzuki Talent Education or Suzuki Method combines a music teaching method with a philosophy, which embraces the total development of the child.  One f the cornerstones of Suzuki teaching is daily listening to recordings of the Suzuki repertoire, as well as music in general. The more frequently the students listen to the recordings, the more easily they learn to play. Parents also play an important role in Suzuki by attending lessons with the student, and assisting them in their daily practice.
