This approach encourages students to develop confidence and self esteem, determination to try difficult things, self-discipline and concentration, as well as a lasting enjoyment of music, and the sensitivity and skill for making music.

The Suzuki Method
More than fifty years ago, Japanese violinist- Shinichi Suzuki realized that children the world over learn to speak their native language with ease by simply mimicking the sounds and expressions of their parents. Suzuki began to apply the basic principles of language acquisition to the learning of music, and called his method the mother-tongue approach. The ideas of parental support, loving encouragement, constant repetition, etc., are some of the special features of the Suzuki approach.
Dr. Suzuki's goal was not simply to develop professional musicians, but to nurture loving human beings and help develop each child's character through the study of music.
"Musical ability is not an inborn talent but an ability which can be developed. Any child who is properly trained can develop musical ability, just as all children develop the ability to speak their mother tongue. The potential of every child is unlimited." - Dr. Suzuki
