I have 27 years of classical guitar experience, specifically studying the Suzuki Method, and have been teaching classical guitar for over 16 years. I have worked with all age groups from kids as young as 5 years old to adults. Patience, humor, games, and engagement is all part of what I do! A little about the Suzuki Method (specifically for younger students): - It is well known that parents play a critical role in child development. The Suzuki method incorporates this understanding through continued parental participation and support - both during lessons and at home practice time. One of the biggest determining factors in a child's ability to learn is parental involvement in their practice time. In this way, the parent becomes a secondary guide/instructor that facilitates proper technique, listening skills, and adaptation to the instrument. This is particularly important for children ages 5-12. - The Suzuki method focuses primarily on ear training, tonal sensitivity, and musical dexterity. The object is to use what is called the "mother tongue" approach to musical development, much in the same way tonal language is learned and taught. As the child develops a more innate understanding of their instrument and music, theory and note reading are slowly incorporated. - Kids must enjoy lesson and practice time! Tools and games are played to keep younger children intellectually stimulated and engaged.
