Small Steps Will Move You Forward

“You’ll make mistakes; we all do, but trust yourself and think for you.”
– Dr. Suzuki

Japanese violinist and teacher who introduced millions of children to his “Suzuki Method”, 1898-1998,  Dr. Shinichi Suzuki developed a method for teaching children to play classical music. He discovered that if steps are small enough anyone could move forward into mastery. People rarely take giant steps, and if they do they often fall down. The trick is finding the step size that propels people forward but allows them to succeed with each move.

“Teaching music is not my main purpose. I want to make good citizens. If children hear fine music from the day of their birth and learn to play it, they develop sensitivity, discipline and endurance. They get a beautiful heart.”

Dr. Suzuki
