10 SUZUKI VIOLIN LEVELS (violinist plays through all books) | Violin Lounge TV #423
I’ve never had a Suzuki violin lesson in my life, but was just interested to browse through the books:
Hi! I'm Zlata
Classical violinist helping you overcome technical struggles and play with feeling by improving your bow technique.
Suzuki is a violin method from Japan that’s mainly popular in the United States, teaching the violin with a repertoire that has a clear emphasis on baroque and classical repertoire. There are many great violinist that started out with the Suzuki method and even more great violinist that learned all without the Suzuki method.
In Europe the usual way is the traditional method with scales, etudes and pieces cut to the individual students guided by beginner books from for example Doflein or Sassmanshaus.
Remember it’s always the teacher teaching and not the method
Your results depend on your practice quality, talent, teacher and what he adds to or instead the Suzuki books in terms of exercises, scales, etudes and repertoire, especially the more romantic and modern repertoire that Suzuki lacks.
Difference between the books and the method
Key in the Suzuki method is the connection between teacher, parent and student, the group lessons and learning the pieces by ear from your teacher. Self learning from the Suzuki books is totally different from following the Suzuki method.
