The Suzuki Method is used in multiple ways in public and private schools. Successful models feature repertoire memory and review, small step-sequenced instruction, and mastery learning in the curriculum. All successful models embrace the Suzuki philosophy and foster a positive learning environment for every child. This course presents strategies for incorporating Suzuki philosophy and methodology in the beginning stages of technical instruction. A sequenced repertoire that supports the technical and musical study of beginning level students in the string class setting will be presented. Steps towards the development of aural and interactive ensemble skills will also be explored.
 
The course will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and includes 15 hours of classroom instruction, 8 hours of observation, and 2 hours of individual consultations.
