Difference between Suzuki and traditional methods
Both the Suzuki and traditional violin schools have proven capable of producing skillful violinists. No single system or method has ever been completely sufficient for one’s education. An open minded teacher will always look for the best individual approach to his students. Borrowing ideas, techniques and materials from other methods and teachers is a very common practice. As teachers, we always strive to find better ways to educate and inspire. Having said that, if you are looking for an auditory based violin method which requires daily listening of music and heavy parental involvement, Suzuki is probably the best system for you. On the other hand, if you prefer to start reading the music from the very beginning, you should consider using the traditional violin method. Please take a look at the similarities and differences between Suzuki and Traditional methods below.
