Violin Suzuki Method
More than fifty years ago, Japanese violinist Shinichi Suzuki realized the implications of the fact that children over the world learn to speak their native language with ease. He began to apply the basic principles of language acquisition to the learning of music, and called his method the mother-tongue approach. The ideas of parent responsibility, loving encouragement, constant repetition, etc., are some of the special features of the Suzuki approach.
