Description

The SUZUKI METHOD of Talent Education is based on Dr. Shinichi Suzuki's view that every child is born with ability, and that man is the son of his environment. According to Dr. Suzuki, a world- renowned violinist and teacher, the greatest joy an adult can know comes from developing a child's potential so he/she can express all that is harmonious and best in human behavior. Students are taught using the "mother-tongue" approach.

This companion CD to Suzuki Piano School Volume 1 was recorded by Haruko Kataoka, a co-founder--along with Dr. Suzuki and his sister-in-law, Shizuko Suzuki--of the Suzuki Piano Method. During her time as the accompanist for Dr. Suzuki's violin classes at the Talent Education Research Institute, she began to research piano pedagogy according to Dr. Suzuki's method of teaching the violin. From that time onward, she traveled extensively training teachers and teaching students. In addition to her training seminars in Matsumoto, Japan, she provided training at universities in North America, Europe and Australia.

About Shinichi Suzuki

Shinichi Suzuki, geboren in Nagoya, Japan, als Sohn des Gründers der weltgrößten Geigenfabrik, erlernte das Geigenspielen erst in seinem siebzehnten Lebensjahr. Nach Beendigung seines Studiums in Tokio ging er nach Berlin, wo er acht Jahre Karl Klinglers Schüler war. Dann kehrte er 1928 mit seiner Frau Waltraud nach Japan zurück, um Konzerte zu geben und zu unterrichten.
Erst gründete er mit dreien seiner Brüder das Suzuki-Quartett, entdeckte dann das Lernvermögen sehr kleiner Kinder und errichtete das jetzt weltbekannte Talenterziehungs-Institut.
Seine Methode hat Professor Clifford Cook so tief beeindruckt, dass dieser sie auch im Oberlin-College-Konservatorium einführte.
