Shinichi Suzuki, a Japanese native and the founder of the Suzuki Method, formed a movement that brought musical beauty to the hands and hearts of children World wide. His demonstrations filled concert halls and auditoriums, delighted audiences and inspired parents and teachers who once thought that you either had "it" or you didn't. Suzuki proved that everyone was inherently musical and could further develop their music skills and abilities provided they were in the right environment. This environment involved continuing the aural tradition of listening and imitating simple melodies along with the guidance of an experienced music teacher together with the teamwork and committed participation of at least one parent or guardian.
"Beautiful tone = Beautiful heart"
"Where love is deep, much can be accomplished" S. Suzuki
