Read full description of the books:This book is typically read by parents and teachers of the Suzuki method. However, reading it this time around, I see it more as a parenting philosophy, especially good for young children (birth to age 5). Dr. Suzuki doesn't back up his ideas with research or facts; his ideas are peppered with anecdotes from his life and experience.
While I generally prefer hard, cold facts, there's something in this book that speaks to me. A few parts made me raise an eyebrow, but for the most part, I agree with what Dr. Suzuki has to say: children are incredible bundles of potential, and the way we treat them determines how they'll turn out. Young children's bad habits are our fault. Our children need us to provide them good examples of how to live. Habits can be changed by practicing a new behavior more times than we practiced the old habit.
I would recommend this book for all parents of young children, not just Suzuki parents.
Read information about the authorShinichi Suzuki (鈴木 鎮一 Suzuki Shin'ichi?, 17 October 1898 – 26 January 1998) was the inventor of the international Suzuki method of music education and developed a philosophy for educating people of all ages and abilities. Considered an influential pedagogue in music education of children, he often spoke of the ability of all children to learn things well, especially in the right environment, and of developing the heart and building the character of music students through their music education. Before his time, it was rare for children to be formally taught classical instruments from an early age and even more rare for children to be accepted by a music teacher without an audition or entrance examination. Not only did he endeavor to teach children the violin from early childhood and then infancy, his school in Matsumoto did not screen applicants for their ability upon entrance. Suzuki was also responsible for the early training of some of the earliest Japanese violinists to be successfully appointed to prominent western classical music organizations. During his lifetime, he received several honorary doctorates in music including from the New England Conservatory of Music (1956), and the Oberlin College Conservatory of Music, was proclaimed a Living National Treasure of Japan, and was nominated for the Nobel Peace prize.
