I'm a violinist who reads everything! Science fiction opens the mind to possibilities, nonfiction opens the mind to knowledge, and art opens the mind to meaning.
So far, Suzuki's methods are not what I expected. They are thoughtful, compassionate, and intelligent ways to teach young children. This is not the kind of thing that can be derided for creating violin-playing child robots. Rather, these nurturing teaching methods are sure to result in individual success and happiness, and I look forward to implementing more of these philosophies in my own studio.
