What is your role?
Parents have a very important role to play in the education of a Suzuki music student. Even before lessons begin, they are encouraged to play recordings of classical music to their young children. Once lessons start, they are expected to attend the lessons, take notes as directed by the teacher and supervise practice at home, including ensuring that the child listens to the pieces he or she is playing, every day.
It is not necessary for a parent to be able to play the instrument his or her child is learning. The teacher will equip every parent with sufficient knowledge to help the child at home. Indeed, many parents have become so inspired helping their children, they have taken up study themselves.
