Product Description

The SUZUKI METHOD of Talent Education is based on Dr. Shinichi Suzuki's view that every child is born with ability, and that man is the son of his environment. According to Dr. Suzuki, a world- renowned violinist and teacher, the greatest joy an adult can know comes from developing a child's potential so he/she can express all that is harmonious and best in human behavior. Students are taught using the ''mother-tongue'' approach. This companion CD to Suzuki Piano School Volume 3 was recorded by Haruko Kataoka, a co-founder--along with Dr. Suzuki and his sister-in-law, Shizuko Suzuki--of the Suzuki Piano Method. During her time as the accompanist for Dr. Suzuki's violin classes at the Talent Education Research Institute, she began to research piano pedagogy according to Dr. Suzuki's method of teaching the violin. From that time onward, she traveled extensively training teachers and teaching students. In addition to her training seminars in Matsumoto, Japan, she provided training at universities in North America, Europe and Australia.

Verified Purchase
I was listening to this CD in my car (for my son), and realized that the same song is repeated "at least 3 times".... not including the repeats the composer wrote on the music score... So you'll be listening to the same song 6 times or more.... This is a torture....

Turns out, Suzuki Volume 3 is very short, (all together about 9 minutes... if no additional unnecessary repeats) they just wanted to fill the CD with playing the same piece again and again and again... (others sell the CD as volume 3 & 4 together, you'll be better off buying them to save money and still keep the mental sanity!)

--- additional comment

I purchased all Suzuki CDs for volume 1-6. Many combines 2 volumes into 1 CD. As I said earlier, each volume is very short to fill 1 CD... just 9 minutes! If this was on LP or Cassette (remember them?), I would partially agree that this was purposeful repetition. But, in the age of CD and MP3, you can just hit the "repeat" button? Play list? In addition, the repetition is not per each song or movement. For example, this CD repeats like this:

Track 1: Sonatina #1: movement 1 -> movement 2 -> movement 3 -> movement 1 -> movement 2 -> movement 3 -> movement 1 -> movement 2 -> movement 3

Track 2: Sonatina #2: movement 1 -> movement 2 -> movement 1 -> movement 2 -> movement 1 -> movement 2

So, if your child is practicing Sonatina #1 movement 2 or 3, then you cannot just go there with a button, but have to seek (or fast forward).... and obviously, you cannot repeat movement 1 or 2 or 3 alone. You will have to hear the all 3 movement with your player's "repeat" button. Very, very annoying!
