Suzuki Violin Teaching Method Workshop

The Elder Conservatorium of Music is delighted to present an evening of Suzuki Violin Teaching Method with violinist Kylie Mahony.

Dr Suzuki’s method of violin teaching had been hugely successful around the world, yet few have a well-informed understanding of the principles and techniques behind its success.

Kylie Mahony will discuss Dr Suzuki’s philosophy, explaining how his child-centred teaching method encourages a love of music. The emphasis on a natural learning method is based on the way students acquire their native tongue, simultaneously fostering the growing child’s abilities and character in a musical, non-competitive environment.

The evening will include a short concert by Suzuki students, with time for audience questions.
