Beyond the Music Lesson

Feb 7, 2018

Welcome Episode 5 where we discuss a listener question, Christine gives a tip that she uses every week when she's teaching and Abbey shares what she is listening to this week. 

Listen to a great conversation with Dr. Kate Einarson who is both a research scientist of 15 years and a violin and Suzuki Early Childhood Music and sits on the Board of Directors of the Suzuki Association of Ontario. Kate completed her Ph.D. at the McMaster Institute for Music and the Mind in Ontario, Canada, studying the development of musical knowledge in infants and children. She also conducts research on Suzuki students and parents as the Co-coordinator of the International Research Symposium on Talent Education.

We talk about things to consider when you are trying to decide if your child is ready for lessons, musical skills that children naturally develop vs. those that need to be taught, and important things that parents and teachers can do to support that process.
