Difference Between Violin And Suzuki Violin Lessons Powered By Docstoc
					Although there are a number of violin schools around the world, the most popular is
still Suzuki violin lessons. People prefer this because of the said advantage it has over
the others.

If you aren't a student here, it can be difficult to see what it is with Suzuki that makes
the teachings unique and loved by many. But however famous Suzuki may be, there
are still disadvantages there, just like traditional schools have theirs.

What's great about Suzuki is that the students can start at very young ages, like 3 or 4.
And because they are so young, parents would need to be there. The
parent-student-teacher interaction is what Suzuki is so proud of. Parents need to be
supportive of their children, and have to stay during the suzuki violin lessons. This
will allow them to teach the necessary exercises at home, after the teacher tells them
what to do. The process makes the children more inclined to learn during suzuki
violin lessons.

Traditional lessons aren't like this at all. Usually, only a student will be in the room,
together with the teacher and his peers. Parents don't have an active role in developing
their children's abilities with this method, which can be preferred by some parents.
This is advantageous for those who don't have time to actively participate in helping
their children.

Another important difference Suzuki has compared to others is the way the students
learn music pieces. While students who study in traditional schools learn by being
taught how to read music early on, Suzuki students learn by ear.

The Suzuki method makes them hear one song over and over, and then lets them play
it accordingly. These students don't learn how to read music until later, when they can
play music without the need to read it. This is good because the students won't have to
rely on eyesight to play, and can use the ear only.

Students develop into better-rounded individuals when they learn how to interact with
other people. This social skill can benefit them in the future: for their school, jobs,
friends, etc. Most schools know this and so want to develop social skills.

Suzuki is one of them, which is why students perform all the time. Students play
independently and with groups. This is done frequently until they have are used to the
public eye and can perform in public without having a stage fright. Other schools
teach the same skill, although not all of them do. You just have to inquire about them.

Some parents choose Suzuki at an early point in their children's life, and then switch
to another school. There can be personal reasons for this, but it isn't necessary.

If the traditional school chosen is reputable, the result would almost be the same, with
the child playing the violin with ease. The advantage though, is still with the absence
of stage fright for Suzuki kids. But basically, the goal of all violin schools is the same:
to teach.
