Suzuki Cello Class (for 3 ½ years old and above)
The Suzuki Method believes that every child has music potential and every child can learn.
The Suzuki Method, developed by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki, is premised on the belief that since every child acquires his or her home language with ease, the principles of language acquisition can also be applied to music learning so that the child will find it an intuitive and enjoyable process.
Also called the Mother-tongue method, the Suzuki method is based on the principle that all children possess learning abilities that can be developed and enhanced through a nurturing environment.
This unique approach is grounded on a concept of early childhood education that focuses on factors which the founder, Shinichi Suzuki observed in native language acquisition, such as immersion and encouragement and an unforced timetable for learning material.
Key principles of Suzuki Cello classes:
- Learning at a very young age, and exposure of a musical environment to enable the child to develop his or her potential more successfully
- Instrumental performance techniques are developed through careful introduction of musical skills and concepts
- Progress in learning through repetitive exercises and confidence building
- Developing ear training by constant exposure to good recordings
- Group playing that cultivates good ensemble skills such as listening to and working cooperatively with other children.
