I am the parent of a 4 year old girl. We started Suzuki piano together about 5 months ago and, like any 4 year old, her enthusiasm levels are like a roller coaster. I was looking for some additional guidance on things i could do to keep our home lessons up beat, limit the frustrations, and, of course, motivate my daughter and help her when she gets hung up on something.
I read Suzuki's book and was looking for more and was surprised by how little is readily available. This book offers tips on all of the things I was looking for. Initially, the tone of the writing came off negative and made me feel like I was doing everything wrong! As i continued reading, I realized the writers had excellent background, spoke to their own experiences and frustrations and no parent is perfect. They relayed common issues that parents/home teachers can face -- including a child who doesn't want to practice -- i thought that was only my problem!
I would recommend this book to any parent either considering Suzuki method or in the middle of it.
