Two essential elements of a Suzuki musical education are that:
- Students learn from listening
- Students learn in a loving, nurturing environment
Parental involvement and care are at the core of accomplishing both of these goals. Take an active interest and role in your child's music education. Create a home environment that celebrates music and provides time for listening to music.
Nurtured By Love
In order to achieve a broad understanding of the Suzuki Method, SAGWA recommends that all parents Shinichi Suzuki's book, Nurtured by Love. This classic work by the founder of the Suzuki Method gives, through personal anecdotes, a history of the development of the Suzuki philosophy and his belief in the high potential of every child.
