Suzuki Violin School Volume 1 is part of the best selling Suzuki series.
The Suzuki philosophy is based upon the idea that children can learn music in the same manner they do their native language, through repetitive listening. Dr Suzuki called his teaching method the mother-tongue approach, inspired by the fact that children learn so effortlessly to speak their native tongue.
When a child learns to speak the following factors all play an important role – Listening, motivation, repetition, memory, parental involvement and love and he applies these factors to learning an instrument, often starting students at a very young age.
