Chris is a registered Suzuki guitar instructor and recommends that this method be used with younger students. Please be aware that parental involvement is crucial to success and that one or both parents must be present at each lesson. Shinichi Suzuki believed that talent can be developed in EVERY child and taught music using a system that is based on the way young children learn their native language, by hearing the sounds first – reading comes later. With daily listening, (songs are available on CD or for digital download), and steady practice, musical sensitivity and a secure technique is developed.
The Suzuki Method is by far the most comprehensive and profound system for teaching children and is taught and respected worldwide.

For an overview of the method and some background to its development read: Nurtured By Love by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki.
