NotesSuzuki simulates language acquisition processSuzuki Approach in the United States
At the close of World War II in Japan, Shinichi Suzuki (1898-1998) originated a philosophy of musical instruction, which produced amazing results in his own country and, subsequently, in the world. His Talent Education, Saino-Kyoiku or “Mother-Tongue Approach,” depends upon creating an environment for students that simulates the language acquisition process. With a loving heart, a probing intellect and the highest of moral values, Suzuki’s approach toward learning a musical instrument aspires to more than musical skills. By nurturing children in an environment of love, he hoped to create noble human beings with hearts and minds open to the beauties of the world.
