Music Training the Suzuki Way
Learn. Create. Thrive
“Musical ability is not an inborn talent but an ability which can be developed. Any child who is properly trained can develop musical ability just as all children develop the ability to speak their mother tongue. The potential of every child is unlimited.” Dr Suzuki
Dr Suzuki has called his teaching method the Mother-Tongue Approach. It was inspired by the knowledge that all children learn to speak their native tongue in the supportive environment of their family.
When a child learns to speak, the following factors are at work:
- Step-by-Step Mastery
- Parent Involvement
- Loving Encouragement
In the Suzuki approach each of these principles is used in the learning of an instrument (piano, violin, viola, cello, flute, guitar and voice).
Following the parallel with language learning, musical training may also start from birth. As the parents lead with language learning likewise with the support of a trained Suzuki teacher, the child will easily develop music ability. As with language, musical language begins at birth. Suzuki Early Childhood Music runs programs for 0-3year olds and 3-5 ½ year olds. Formal instrumental lessons may begin from 2-3 years of age depending on their readiness.
