C had her very first Suzuki violin lesson yesterday, and here she is with my mother in law after her lesson, practicing positioning the violin properly. Janice was a music teacher in the public schools for about 40 years, so she’s a wonderful asset to have for C as she learns the violin.
Janice is the one who suggested the idea of violin for C, and who is providing her with the lessons, as well as working with her between lessons. Yep. She’s awesome. And my kids adore their “Mimi.”
Have any of your children (or you) learned an instrument using the Suzuki method? What did you think? I find the Suzuki concept fascinating, sort of like Montessori for music. I am really looking forward to seeing how it unfolds with 5 year old C.
