TEACHING FROM THE BALANCE POINT

 

A definitive resource for Suzuki Teachers and Parents, Teaching From the Balance Point draws on Suzuki Teacher and Teacher Trainer Edward Kreitman's decades of experience teaching and working with the pioneers of the Suzuki Method in America. 

TEACHING WITH AN OPEN HEART

 

"Edward Kreitman has taken the life-altering experience of open-heart surgery and subsequent learnings - medical, psychological, and spiritual - and integrated them into his life as a wholistic teacher.  Teaching with an Open Heart will inform and inspire others who teach the violin.  The truths he shares, however, go far beyond the instrument, mirroring the teachings of Dr. Suzuki, that we are 'educating for life through music'." Kay Collier McLaughlin, PhD

STRING QUARTET LITERATURE

 

This analysis of string quartet literature was initially undertaken for a presentation by Carol Dallinger at the Indiana Music Educators' Conference in 1991.  The material has also been presented at the Kentucky Music Educators' Conference and at the American Suzuki Institute in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. The information is invaluable for anyone who coaches chamber music, whether in the public schools, at summer institutes and festivals, or at the university level.  With the help of this analysis, the chamber music instructor can find movements of quartets that are appropriate for each individual string quartet, regardless of level.
