DU Suzuki Program Sets Talent Education Meeting
Posted: January 18, 2008 / Last Updated: January 21, 2008
Say the phrase “Suzuki Method” and the image of a small child playing a musical instrument, beautifully of course, first comes to mind. The second thought is, “Could my child actually do that?” To answer that question and more, an educational meeting about the Suzuki Method will be held at 9:15 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26, in the Rehearsal Room of Burke Hall (240 West Broadway).
Shin’ichi Suzuki said, “I want to make good citizens. If a child hears fine music from the day of his birth and learns to play it himself, he develops sensitivity, discipline and endurance. He gets a beautiful heart.” The meeting will cover Suzuki’s philosophy and how it applies to teaching music to children and their families. There also will be an opportunity to observe Suzuki group lessons and meet the Denison University Suzuki program faculty and staff. The Denison Suzuki program offers instruction in violin, cello, piano and flute to students ages 3 to adult. To register or obtain more information contact Jim Van Reeth at 740-975-4644. The meeting is free and open to the public.
