The Suzuki Approach
Author: Louise Behrend
Publisher: Alfred Music
In 1971 Louise Behrend collected a significant number of articles written about the Suzuki approach. These articles were published as a ten-part series in Allegro, the monthly newspaper of the New York Musicians' Union. The purpose was to clear up many widely held misconceptions about the Suzuki ideas and to encourage more fine players and teachers to explore Suzuki teaching. Now published in book form, this pioneering information becomes accessible to a much wider audience.
This textbook by the father of the Suzuki Method®, Dr. Shinichi Suzuki, contains several essays that deal with children's abilities, educational systems, memory and absorption, the power of habit, early education and the fostering of students' talents. A glimpse into the mind of a great man!

Dr. Suzuki questioned why all vocalists vocalize every day to improve their voices, but instrumentalists do not do so every day with their instruments. He believes that on any instrument, one needs to practice to make a more beautiful tone. First he talks about playing a beautiful resonant tone with the bow while plucking the string with a finger. When a pizzicato is played, the resonance goes on for a long time. Students should listen to that resonance and play the same kind of clear beautiful sound. He talks about how to make a difference in the tone by using a different bow speed, how to practice to find the resonance point, how to change the weight of the arm on the bow to produce a different kind of tone, and how to change tone color. This book includes all of Dr. Suzuki's basic ideas about tone.

The Genius of Simplicity was written in 1982 by Linda Wickes, an orchestral violinist, educator, lecturer and dedicated string teacher who uses the Suzuki Method®. Her book, the author herself claims, is a rebuttal or answer to the implication from skeptics that the Suzuki Method® is a "shallow simplistic gimmick." She accomplishes her goal, but succeeds in doing considerably more! Wickes begins her book with an analysis of Suzuki's philosophy, and continues with chapters entitled: Start Young * Step-by-Step Mastery * Learning by Listening * Group Lessons and Performances * Pedagogy and Technique * Parents and Practicing * Psychology. This book's most wonderful feature is the depth and breadth of research which has gone into each facet. The culmination of this research is a bibliography of such wealth as to be a required reading list for all interested in early childhood education. This book should be read and studied by all teachers, parents, and students of Suzuki as well as all people interested in the growing field of early childhood education.
Dr. Suzuki's writings and addresses, some of which are not generally available, are collected here to present his philosophies on the "Mother Tongue Approach" and the education of children with the Suzuki Method.
