About Violin Lessons & The Suzuki Method

KS1 Children – Parents of children in KS1 are asked to come along to violin classes first to learn about how to play the violin. This class helps parents to practice and motivate their child at home in the early stages of learning how to play the violin. Parent classes are fun and easy! The main point of learning is to give you first hand information on how to support and encourage your child’s musical education.

 

What is the Suzuki Method?

The Suzuki approach was developed by Dr. Suzuki who believed that every child, if properly taught, is capable of a high level of musical achievement. He saw that, if every child has the inborn ability to learn their native language, then they also have the ability to learn and become proficient on a musical instrument. If children begin early to hear and learn music, just as they do speech, they will develop their natural musical ability; this is the “mother tongue” method.

 

  • Just as they hear their mother tongue spoken, children also hear music around them much of the time.
  • Just as parents reward the child’s speech efforts with smiles, hugs, and praise, they also reward the child’s musical efforts.
  • Just as speech practice takes place many times throughout the day through hearing and repeating words thousands of times, so music is listened to often.
  • Just as children learn to read only after they are fluent speakers, they learn to read music only when they have mastered basic techniques.

 

Here at St. Gregory’s we offer Suzuki violin lessons to children from Nursery onward. Parents of beginning young Suzuki students will participate in a parent education program (although parents of students of any age are welcome). The “practice parent” will learn to play the first songs. This will teach them the basics and will help them learn how to practice with their child as a home teacher. In addition, it motivates the child to see Mum or Dad practice and learn to play a violin. The parent and child will practice together daily. The parent will act as the home teacher. This commitment to daily time with the instrument is the most important thing that the parent can do to help the child to be successful.
