Suzuki Violin (ages 3 yrs +)
Dr. Shinichi Suzuki, a Japanese violinist and teacher, founded a music education movement in the 1950s based on the premise that all children are born with musical ability. The Suzuki approach is modeled after the way young children learn to communicate in their native language. A child will need encouragement and a positive attitude from its parents and teachers.Parents that are new to the Suzuki method are required to attend an introduction to the Suzuki philosophy, before the beginning of the child’s study. Parental participation, support in lessons, and practice at home, are essential to success. Prior knowledge of music is not needed, but parents must be willing to be very involved in the learning process. Numerous performances are offered throughout the year, and performance is a requirement.
About the Suzuki Method
The Suzuki Method uses the violin as a medium to teach children the values of hard work, communication, respect, and music education. Dr. Shinichi Suzuki’s method seeks to nurture children within a musical environment to create a noble character and a sensitive heart, as well as development of left- and right-brains through musical and instrumental skills, movement, and self-expression. At CMSa2 we also strive to instill skills of independent problem-solving. The method begins with a period of “parent education” in which the parent and teacher meet to better prepare for the education of the child. These sessions with parents are considered individual lessons and are included in the tuition.
