PHILOSOPHY • The philosophy of the Suzuki School of the Arts, Inc. is based on the philosophy and principles of the Suzuki method of teaching, developed by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki. Dr. Suzuki believed that everyone is born with an ability to learn and that this ability can be developed through proper nurturing. Based on the belief that all individuals can learn and love to learn if teaching is exciting, interesting, and challenging, the Suzuki philosophy leads each student to discover his or her own unique gifts and talents. Confidence acquired through the mastering of skills enables all students to achieve the highest standards while enjoying the process in an environment of mutual respect. The blending of excellence in instruction with sensitivity to each student's needs enables the students to achieve their full potential. Embracing the family in all aspects of the Suzuki methodology generates a closesness for student and family; involving the community promotes a sense of interdependence; and inspiring a belief in the value of all persons creates an interconnectedness with the world.
