I grew up a Suzuki violin student from the age of three, have a B.S. in Early Childhood Education, and am Suzuki Trained through the Suzuki Association of the Americas (SAA) in Violin & Suzuki Early Childhood Education. I currently serve as President of the Oregon Suzuki Association, run my private studio Brookside Suzuki Strings, Co-teach Suzuki Early Childhood Education classes in the Portland area & most recently have started to write about all things teaching and Suzuki. I hope through this blog you will find inspiration, new ideas and a renewed sense of the powerful impact that music & the Suzuki method can have in our lives.
