SUZUKI OF THE TRIANGLE

“Suzuki” is an educational method which strives to create ability and beautiful character in students through a nurturing environment. The ‘nurture’ involved in the movement is modeled on a concept of early childhood that focuses on factors which Shinichi Suzuki observed in native language acquisition such as immersion, encouragement, small steps, and an unforced timetable for learning material based on each person’s developmental readiness to imitate examples and internalize principles.
