A definitive resource for Suzuki Teachers and Parents, Teaching with an Open Heart serves as follow up to Teaching from the Balance Point in which Edward Kreitman explores...

"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, Director for Leadership Development and Independent Human Relations, Emotional Intelligence Consultant, Author of They're Rarely Too Young and Never Too Old to Twinkle.​

"Teaching with an Open Heart is an exquisite tribute to Shin'ichi Suzuki, a commentary that illuminates the heart of his philosophy.  The book has given me a deeper awareness in my teaching, a joy in sensing the wholeness of a student's engagement when skill and heart come together in the moment of music making.  This profound book has inspired in me a new sense of value of what we do in our work with children."

Janis Wittrig, Suzuki Violin Teacher

"Edward Kreitman's understanding of the physical, spiritual, and energetic perspectives of teaching is brought to us directly in Teaching with an Open Heart.   This groundbreaking book illuminates the profoundly life-altering effect that we, as teachers, can have with our students and offers the reader the wisdom to participate in the quest for global healing."
