The Suzuki Method
While studying violin in Germany, Shinichi Suzuki was struck by the fact that German children learned to speak German fluently by their mother's side. Just as Japanese children absorbed the dialect of the parents, all children in the world learned their native language effortlessly by listening to the adults and children in their environment. This realisation led Suzuki to analyse mother tongue learning and apply the same characteristics to the study of music and later all subjects. It includes much listening, repetition, praise and performance. No word is discarded and learning accelerates with practice. Adults must wait for readiness. The Suzuki Method is a child-centred way of learning.
