The Denison University Suzuki Program has set a Talent Education meeting for 9:15 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 10, in the Rehearsal Room at Burke Hall of Music and Art (240 W. Broadway). The meeting is for anyone interested in learning about the philosophy of Suzuki Talent Education and how it applies to teaching music to children and their families. Parents, public school, and private teachers are encouraged to attend. There will be an opportunity to observe Suzuki group lessons and to meet the Denison University Suzuki Program faculty and staff.
The Suzuki Method of teaching music was developed by Shinichi Suzuki who believed in fostering the potential in every young person. Just as children develop the ability to speak their mother tongue, Suzuki believed that any child who is properly trained could develop musical ability and other life-long skills with the help of a skilled and caring teacher and his or her parent.
The Denison University Suzuki Program offers instruction in cello, flute, piano and violin to students ages 3 to adult. The program currently has openings for the spring semester, which begins in January 2008. Please call Jim Van Reeth at (740) 975-4644 to register or obtain additional information.
