Lauderdale Suzuki Music
Lauderdale Suzuki Group is part of the British Suzuki Institute and the London Suzuki Group. The Group consists of six violin teachers and five musicianship teachers/accompanists. The Lauderdale Suzuki Group was founded by Elisabeth Waterhouse in 1978 and started with only about 30 children. This has now expanded to around 80 families.
Lauderdale Suzuki Group offers group classes that complement the individual lessons a child has in the Suzuki method. Group teaching is considered by us to be an essential part of learning as an addition to the individual lessons that each child has. Each child particpates in an Instrumental Group and a Musicianship Class or Orchestra/Ensemble.
The majority of classes last 50 minutes. Children must always be supervised during classes by a parent, or another adult appointed by the parent where this is not possible.
The Suzuki Method was conceived in the mid-20th century by Shin'ichi Suzuki, a Japanese violinist who desired to bring some beauty to the lives of children in his country after the devastation of World War II. He pioneered the idea that any pre-school age child could begin to play the violin if learning steps were small enough and if the instrument was scaled down to fit their body. Suzuki believed that every child, if properly taught, was capable of a high level of musical achievement. He also made it clear that the goal of such musical education was to raise generations of children with "noble hearts" (as opposed to creating famous musical prodigies).
