"We absolutely love and enjoy our daughter’s lessons with Kathy. We started the lesson when our daughter was three and half years old. The teachings are well organized, which helps us parents to learn music together with our daughter. A toddler’s attention span is not for more than a few seconds, yet Kathy manages to keep the child engaged in meaningful learning. Outside lesson times, Kathy provided us with plenty of materials such as videos, music, calendars, and other teaching aids to keep our child interested. With Kathy’s encouragement, in just about over a year of lesson time, in additional to Suzuki repertoire, our daughter is already transposing and making harmonizing melodies with movie music she likes. We think soon, she will be playing Bach. We are very thrilled."
- Han Liu, father of Matilda Liu (age 4)
Parent Education Course “Participating in Kathy's 8-week Suzuki course for parents has been a wonderful experience. This introduction to the violin and to Suzuki principles and philosophies has been both exciting and absorbing. Reading and discussing the Suzuki principles with Kathy has really generated an enthusiasm within me. I know that this new knowledge, understanding and enthusiasm is what I'll use to support my daughter as she begins her own journey with the violin.
I have a music background in piano and clarinet, but it's been many years since last I practiced an instrument or took lessons. I was surprised by how proud I felt as I learned how to hold the bow, how to hold the violin, and how to play twinkles! I feel well-prepared to assist my child during practice now. Thanks to the Suzuki course, I'll be able to confidently assist my child as she learns violin skills. I look forward to witnessing the pride I know she'll feel as she masters each new set of violin skills and techniques.”
