Why This Blog?

Wow! Isn't the internet amazing? When I was a young teacher just starting out in 1976, I had little in the way of resources. I had one book to consult about how to apply the Suzuki method of Talent Education. It was Dr. Suzuki's "Nurtured by Love" book. I read the entire book in about an hour (it's short), but I had so many questions. Since that time, I have taken many Suzuki teacher trainings, and I have had the benefit of gaining experience by teaching full time. I can now diagnose a student or teacher issue within minutes and offer helpful solutions. Come join me in a discussion of teaching or learning the Suzuki Method for violin. Post your questions or comments about your particular situation, and I'll do my best to answer them.

I have been teaching Suzuki violin and piano for over 36 years and have a great deal of teaching experience. I can help students of all ages and levels, the parents of students studying the Suzuki Method of Talent Education, and other Suzuki teachers.


  1. Thank you so much for this blog! I am a violinist who was taught through Suzuki method and now I have little ones starting. This is a lifesaver!
