Thames Valley Suzuki School

Suzuki Method

Dr. Shinichi Suzuki (1898 – 1998), Japanese violinist and teacher studied how children learn for over fifty years. Encouraged by their ability to assimilate the “mother tongue”, he saw a great opportunity to enrich children’s lives through music. His primary goal was not only to teach young people to play musical instruments. Rather, he recognized the unique contribution music could make in the total learning process. His goals also included development of the whole child, unfolding the natural potential to learn and becoming a good and happy person.

The purpose of Suzuki training then, is not to produce great artists, but to help every child find the joy that comes through music making. Throughout their growth in the Suzuki Method, children thrive in an environment of total support. Suzuki students develop confidence and self-esteem, determination to try difficult things, self-discipline and the ability to listen and concentrate. As well, they acquire a lasting enjoyment of msuci and the sensitivity and skills necessary for making music.

All of the programs available at Thames Valley Suzuki School are based on the Suzuki Philosophy.
