Shinichi Suzuki applied 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, listening to recordings, step-by-step mastery, and group learning are some of the defining features of the Suzuki approach.Discovery3 Indian Hill Music School is now offering a Suzuki Program for Violin or Guitar for ages 4+. Learn more about this unique and effective approach from instructor Bethany Stephan.
