New to Suzuki? Understand the 7 Core Principles of Crescendo Kids

Have you ever wondered how long it might take for an infant to learn a musical masterpiece? Dr. Suzuki thought probably only about 5 months!

"If a particular piece of music is played every day for the baby, musical sense gradually grows. For example, if a five minute masterpiece by Mozart is played for the baby from birth, the baby learns it by five months or so."-Dr. Suzuki 

Crescendo Kids is the Early Childhood Music program at Morin Music Studio. Rooted in Suzuki philosophy, our youngest students in our Suzuki ECE classes from ages 0-3 years gain confidence in a pressure-free environment while participating in a weekly interactive music class. 

Suzuki  Early Childhood Education is practiced worldwide, and is the realization of potential through active and reactive participation in the environment. The program and curriculum is based on Dr. Suzuki's beliefs that every child can learn and that each child's potential is unlimited. 

The goal - to create an environment for children, free from pressure in which they can gain skills, a sense of purpose in life, an understanding of discipline and an appreciation of beauty.

Based on the Suzuki Mother Tongue Approach, the Suzuki Early Childhood Education is based on these core principles:

  • Every child can learn
  • Ability develops early
  • Environment nurtures growth
  • Children learn from one another
  • Success breeds success
  • Parental involvement is critical
  • Encouragement is essential

These principles make the Suzuki program so unique, and also allows our youngest students to grow skills, ability and confidence.

Each principle plays a key role in the Suzuki ECE curriculum - is there one that strikes you as unique?
