    I have battled for many years with one delightful pupil, who has had huge difficulty playing in tune. Both her parents have degrees in music. Quite by chance, one day I asked Dad (English) whether he ever listened to Mum’s (Thai) music. He said he did not because it was so out of tune to his ears. He said that the octave was divided differently in Thai music from Western music. Thai is also a tonal language. I would love to spread the word to other teachers who may be battling with the same problem. And to get any feed back from you. Many thanks. Mary

    This weblog is useful for all music teachers, including those who are not Suzuki teachers!
    I have reviewed it and find the suggestions for and on parents to be beneficial as well as the piano ideas given.
    Thank you for sharing this, and I hope this blog reaches the non-Suzuki educational community as well.

    Thank you, Kerstin Wartberg, for connecting us.
    The Suzuki world is made up of a great community of open minded sharing people.

    Dedicado con todo el amor que tengo por mi gran Maestro Shinichi Suzuki para todos mis amigos, colegas Suzukianos del mundo. Debemos de trabajar juntos!! Solo un gran Maestro Suzuki puede lograr convivir y compartir sus experiencias con los demás. Dejemos el ego y el miedo aún lado. Seamos sensibles, ayudemos a los demás, interesarte por tus alumnos, no critiques, no señales. Aprende a ayudar. Pongámonos los pantalones y apliquemos la verdadera Filosofía Suzuki no un Libro y Cd.

    This is the beauty of the Suzuki Method, that we all work together, encourage each other, share ideas, and help other teachers’ students as much as our own.

    Together we are greater than the sum of our parts.
