The Suzuki method of learning violin has been an enriching learning experience for our family as it involves considerable parent implication in children´s learning to play the violin. I had no knowledge of music but a 2 month preparatory period with the teacher (just for parents) provided the tools to initiate this wonderful adventure and joy of learning and appreciating music. The method involves learning through imitation ( like one´s mother tongue) and children don´t learn to read music first. The experience has led me to design our daily practice at home, finding ways to make it less arduous, although I´ve learnt about deliberate practice, focus on harder parts in short frequent learning periods and combining some difficult parts of a song with other songs they play well and enjoy. As a result my children 6, and 9 do independently take the violin and play without any "coaxing."
