Do students learn by ear?
Suzuki students develop highly trained ears through daily listening to recordings of the music they are learning. Because of this, they are free to learn pieces beyond their early reading abilities, enabling them to concentrate on musicianship and technique.
Do students learn to read music?
Yes! The teaching of pre-reading skills begins immediately in the weekly group classes and lessons, with students learning to read music at the age appropriate time.
What is required of the parent?
One parent (the Suzuki "Mom" or "Dad") attends lessons and takes notes. The Suzuki Parent is then responsible for daily home practice and listening.
