Dr Shinichi Suzuki

Shinichi Suzuki (1898-1998) was a Japanese violinist and teacher and one of the most innovative an influential musical educators of the twentieth century. He believed that all children have great potential for talent, musical or otherwise.

After observing that all children were capable of learning their native language without formal lessons, Dr Suzuki developed a philosophy of musical instruction based on his belief that all children have great potential for talent, musical or otherwise, given the right experiences and environment.

Dr Suzuki saw that children, given the opportunity to learn and develop musical ability, develop sensitivity, discipline and endurance. He devoted his life to making children throughout the world become happy people, fine human beings with beautiful hearts, through musical education in a nurturing environment.

Through his life’s work and concern for humanity Dr Suzuki developed a vision and methodology to provide children with a means to develop ability through music education. By studying children and their astonishing capacity to learn their mother-tongue language, Dr Suzuki’s method emulated these proven conditions for learning. His primary aim was to develop good character in children through music education and, by doing so, prepare them to make a positive influence in the world.
