Suzuki Method Piano Lessons

Suzuki Method Piano Lessons

The Murfreesboro Academy of Music is now offering Suzuki method Piano lessons. The Suzuki approach to teaching started in Japan with Dr. Shinichi Suzuki who believed that the process by which a child learns their native language can be applied to the study of music through an encouraging and nurturing environment. The Suzuki method requires the instructor, student and parent(s) to form a “Suzuki Triangle” to help the student succeed. The process relies heavily on parents to play an important role in their child’s musical education. Parents attend lessons, take careful notes and provide critical feedback.There is a strong emphasis on the aural model of learning as music is first and foremost about sound. Listening actively or passively is of utmost importance. Dr. Suzuki said, “Listening until we remember is not enough. We must listen until we cannot forget.” Students engaged in the Suzuki repertoire gain technical and musical knowledge as they progress through each phase. Quality of playing with a beautiful and sensitive tone is also strongly emphasized. The goals of Suzuki education are to develop character, discipline, perseverance, concentration, self-esteem, self-control, respect and an awareness of beauty. The Suzuki method also teaches students important lifelong habits such as listening, eye-hand coordination, memorization, left and right brain coordination and sensitivity to patterns. Skills such as music theory, ear training, sight reading, transposition, keyboard harmony, improvisation, composition and ensemble skills are also incorporated during private or group lessons. If you are interested in enrolling your child in Suzuki method Piano lessons please contact the Academy. For more information on the Suzuki method please visit Suzuki Association of the...
