VIOLIN - SUZUKI CURRICULUM
Students gradually develop their violin technique, including proper posture, bowing technique, intonation, and finger strength.
Progressively, students learn and master a variety of classical pieces and exercises from the Suzuki books. These pieces are carefully chosen to develop specific skills at each level.
A strong emphasis is placed on ear training and learning music by ear. Students develop the ability to play melodies and pieces without relying heavily on sheet music.
Suzuki students are encouraged to focus on musical expression, dynamics, and phrasing from the early stages of learning.
Regular recitals and group performances are often part of the Suzuki method, helping students build confidence in performing in front of others.
While the Suzuki method primarily emphasizes learning by ear, students are introduced to music notation gradually as they progress, enabling them to read sheet music effectively.
DISCIPLINE & PRACTICE
Students develop strong practice habits and self-discipline as they work towards mastering pieces and advancing through the books.
Suzuki students become skilled listeners, able to recognize and appreciate nuances in music.
Ultimately, the Suzuki method aims to foster a lifelong love for music in students, nurturing their passion for playing the violin.
