Suzuki Talent Education Method

Shinichi Suzuki observed the infants innate ability to learn the language his or her parents speak. For months the infant hears his parents speaking. Soon, the infant begins to try and speak. Slowly, the infant begins to say the words he's heard spoken by his parents. Eventually the infant puts words together. Suzuki realized that all children do this naturally. He believed that all children could learn to play the violin in the same way as long as he has patient encouragement from his parents and teachers.


Children can begin a formal Suzuki violin program as early as two or three years of age. However there are more and more parents beginning pre-suzuki programs either with professional teachers or on their own. Listening to the first volume of music can begin before birth. Games, such as fingerplays, can help develop toddlers fine motor skills and are a fun way of encouraging expression through their hands. Baby sign language is another way to encourage infants and toddlers to communicate with their hands.
