Talent Education

Shinichi Suzuki, violinist and teacher, began developing his system of education in the 1930’s.  He recognized children’s ability to assimilate language as an opportunity to enrich them through music.  He called this method the Mother Tongue method.  Suzuki believed that talent is not an inborn ability, but a skill that can be developed to a very high level in every child given the proper training and environment. Because Suzuki was a violinist, he applied his theories first to teaching children to play the violin.  The Suzuki Method, also known as Talent Education, now includes flute, recorder, cello, viola, string bass, piano, harp, and guitar.

Benefits of Suzuki Study
Suzuki students develop many skills beyond musical technique including problem solving, memory skills, perseverance and the ability to focus on a task.  Other benefits of Suzuki study are an increasing appreciation of music, development of an emotional outlet, sense of self-worth, discipline, and respect for other people with similar and diverse skills.
