In our second Faculty Q&A Podcast, we feature three of our faculty members who also assume the role of Suzuki Parent with their own children. These teachers share their insights and wisdom that come with their unique perspectives from multiple sides of the Suzuki Triangle.
Listen to the entire conversation above, or listen to responses to individual questions below:
Q: How do you help your child to stay motivated, or to regain their motivation in those periods of time when it's lacking.
Q: How do you keep yourselves motivated as parents?
Q: As musicians ourselves, we innately understand the value of being a musician - can we quantify that for parents who may not have a musical background?
Q: How can parents be their best "Suzuki Parent" selves in the lesson?
Q: Strategies for parents working with extremely independent young children who want to do everything by themselves.
Q: How can parents guide an older, adolescent student to practice efficiently as their pieces become longer and more complex?
Q: How do you define success or progress?
Q: What does the process of transition from guided-to independent practice look like?
Q: How do you help a student develop love for playing the instrument that is not just about compliance, but is actually about loving their instrument, and loving music?
