Suzuki Method

The Japanese violinist Shinichi Suzuki (1898-1998) realized that every child can learn to speak a language from a young age. You might think, “Isn’t that obvious?” However, there are children who can speak two or three languages effortlessly and master complex grammatical rules. Suzuki also noticed that children speak their language with differences in pronunciation and intonation. He discovered that every child has a phenomenal ability to learn and an excellent ear for different sounds. As a result, he developed a method where children can learn to play music very quickly and naturally, similar to how they learn a language. This method always involves a parent.

The Suzuki Method: A Musical Journey at Muziekschool Den Haag

At Muziekschool Den Haag, we embrace the philosophy of Dr. Shinichi Suzuki, who believed that “every child can learn.” The Suzuki method, also known as the “mother tongue method,” approaches music education in the same way as learning a native language.

Characteristics of the Suzuki Method:

  1. Listening: Just as children learn their native language by listening, Suzuki students are immersed in music.
  2. Imitation: By imitating the teacher and other students, children naturally develop their musical skills.
  3. Repetition: Repeatedly practicing music pieces strengthens memory and skill.
  4. Motivation: The method promotes positive reinforcement and a loving learning environment.
  5. Parental Involvement: Parents play an active role in the learning process, similar to language development.

Our dedicated teachers are not only experts in their instruments but also trained in the Suzuki pedagogical approach. They work closely with parents to create a supportive and stimulating environment where every child can thrive.

Begin your musical journey with the Suzuki method and experience the joy of making music in harmony with others!
