What is suzkuki music, you're wondering? More than fifty years ago, Japanese violinist Shinichi Suzuki realized the implications of the fact that children the world over learn to speak their native language with ease. He began to apply the basic principles of language acquisition to the learning of music, and called his method the mother-tongue approach. The ideas of parent responsibility, loving encouragement, constant repetition, etc., are some of the special features of the Suzuki approach.
This FREE demo class will be offered by Shelly Beard Schleigh, musician, mother of Violet, and wife to Michael Schleigh. Shelley directs the Suzuki Academy at The Music School of Delaware. She teaches violin and viola lessons for the program both at her home in Lansdowne and at the school’s main branch in North Wilmington. And Shelly was also a guest phillyfun mom a few months ago if you want to read her awesome post about fun things to do with kids in Lansdowne!
