About Suzuki

The Suzuki Approach was created by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki and is based on the principle that “Every Child Can Learn”. He believed that every child can learn how to play an instrument given proper instruction in a nurturing environment created by a teacher and a parent. This approach is based on Dr. Suzuki’s study of how children learn their mother tongue. 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. Find out more at www.suzukiassociation.org
