Judy Doxtater, North Valley Music School piano teacher, spent two weeks in Oakland, CA being trained in the Suzuki Piano Method.
"I adjudicated a piano festival a few years back and heard a young girl play for me. She stood out among the others I had heard play. Her production of sound, the beauty of her phrasing and her overall musicality was exquisite. I found out later that she was studying with a Suzuki trained teacher. This past year I had the opportunity to observe a Master Suzuki teacher teach beginners and students whom she had trained for 15 yrs. It was at that point that I knew I wanted to be trained in the Suzuki method."
ABOUT SUZUKI: Every Child Can learn to play beautifully. It is not a matter of having been born with music talent. Talent is something that can be taught, given the right environment and parental support. This is the philosophy of the Suzuki Method.
The teacher, parent and child work together to allow the child to build the techniques taught at the lessons. The parent attends each lesson and learns along with the child, so he/she can serve as "home teacher" during the week.
Listening to the Suzuki repertoire is a very important part of the training. Just like children learn language from hearing it and repeating it, they also learn to play music through the listening component in the beginning of their studies of Suzuki.
There will be an informational meeting on August 23, Sunday at 4:30 in the Great Room at NVMS. If you know for sure you are interested in lessons, please order: (Amazon.com or Morganroth..Missoula) Suzuki Piano School Vol. 1, played by Haruko Kataoka. Order only the CD.
