Suzuki was born in an old house in 1898, his father managed a the most largest piano factory. He studied music when he was 22, after return home, he had the big confidence about how to exploit the violin and improve the child’s ability. Since every child has their own educational method, he devoted to the education for child. He trained up a large mount of children to be talents and write a book called early education and ability cultivate.
Suzuki is a writer in Japan and Einstein’s friend, he firmly believed that music can exploit the intelligence of children. He worked on the early childhood education in the early 1930s and formed the famous ‘‘Suzuki Method’’. It is reported that there are 300,000 children benefited from the Suzuki Method and many of them has became the music professors and well-known conductors. The method has rich content and creatively development for the early education.
Firstly, Suzuki believes that any talent is not born, but the result of acquired training and education. Any child, as long as he is educated, will develop and become a talented person.
Secondly, Suzuki believes that people who have the highest level of competence in a certain field can reach the same level in other fields. Children have reached a high level in music and will show high levels of competence in other fields. Therefore, Suzuki has repeatedly stated that his talent education for children is not to train children into musicians, but to become a person with excellent ability, a beautiful soul, and a person who will embark on a happy life path. He firmly believes that the training of violin can effectively improve the child’s intuition ability or inspiration, and this ability or inspiration can be transferred to other aspects.
Thirdly, Suzuki believes that the talent of a child depends mainly on the education that started at the age of 0. In the past, Suzuki thought that the most appropriate time for children to learn violin is around 4 to 5 years old, but later he continued to lower the age of learning the violin, not only for children to learn piano from 3 years old or even 2 years old. He said that the sooner you start learning, the better ability you will get, and you can do it earlier.
The ability is independent of the genetic law, and it is acquired in the process of constantly adapting to the living environment.
