 About the Suzuki Method
 ............................................

"Music Ability is not an inborn talent but an ability which can be developed." 
More than fifty years ago, Japanese violinist Shinichi Suzuki realized the implications of the fact that children the world over learn to speak their native language acquisition to the leaning of music, and called his method the mother-tongue approach. The ideas of parent responsibility, loving encouragement, constant repetition, ect., are some of the special features of the Suzuki approach.
