Erst sprechen, dann lesen

 

Die Suzuki-Methode, auch bekannt als Muttersprachen-methode, basiert auf einem ganz natürlichen Geschehen, dem Erlernen der Muttersprache. So wie Kinder zunächst sprechen und dann erst lesen lernen, musizieren sie mit der Suzuki-Methode auch zunächst nach Gehör, bevor sie das Notenlesen erlernen.

 

2008 habe ich angefangen, mit Vorschulkindern zu arbeiten. Die spezielle Methodik und auch den erforderlichen Mut für die besondere Lernsituation mit den Kleinsten und deren Eltern verdanke ich meiner zweijährigen Ausbildung in Mailand, Italien, als Suzuki-Lehrerin. Nach meiner Erfahrung kann ich die Suzuki-Methode, die sich in über 70 Jahren mit Erfolg weltweit etabliert hat, als die effektivste Methode für Instrumentalunterricht im Vorschulalter bezeichnen.

Linstening to music:
our most important job! 

 

Thoughts on the Suzuki Piano School

From Haruko Kataoka

 

Mrs. Haruko Kataoka was born in Tokyo in 1927 and is co-founder and continuing developer of the Suzuki Piano Method in Matsumoto, Japan at Dr. Suzuki’s Talent Education Institute. 

 

How is the Suzuki Method different?

Traditionally, elementary music texts are prepared on the basis of how adults think children learn. The Suzuki Method is completely different from the traditional approach: Listening precedes everything.

 

How does children learn music? By listening!

In the Suzuki Method, rather than first playing the piano, the important job is to listen to the music the children is trying to learn. Listening is essential. When one listens repeatedly, the music enters the mind, and the more thoroughly it is internalized, the easier it is to reproduce it. It is much easier and pleasanter to study a piece one already knows than it is to play it without knowing or having heard it before.

 

Never say: I am playing this record for you

Suzuki begins with the child listening to the music to be learned. For this, parental cooperation is absolutely essential (if not a parent, some adult). Babies go through listening spontaneously to the voices of people talking around them from the time of their birth. Create a similar environment for your children. Never say: “I am playing this record for you”;  just arrange it so that the music enters their ears before they realize it, spontaneously as in language.

 

Please, let the child listen longer than he practices the piano. 

The more he/she listens, the better. When they listen a lot, children learn so fast that the teacher is surprised. If possible, a child should listen to the pieces 3 years ahead of playing.

 

Listening is the most important job!

If you play the Suzuki record once or twice a day, children will pick up and play pieces from the Piano Book 1 by ear.

 

By playing the pieces they have learned one by one, over and over, they learn to taste the joy of playing the piano fluently, taking delight in music.
