Memories of Dr Shinichi Suzuki: Son of His Environment
Dr Shinichi Suzuki, creator of “The Suzuki Method”, is well remembered for his extraordinary warmth, care, and sense of humour.
Part biography, part memoir, this important book recalls scenes from Suzuki's life, and many of the author's own experiences as his student in Japan. Both humorous and culturally informative, this book illustrates how Suzuki was influenced by Japanese history and his Zen beliefs, making him "the son of his environment".
Students, teachers, and lovers of music and history alike will enjoy this stroll through the life and teachings of the quick-witted Dr Suzuki, who turned the music education world upside down.
Written by good friend to Bows for Strings, Lois Shepheard, a renowned Australian violin and viola teacher and Suzuki teacher-trainer who introduced the Suzuki Method to Victoria and established the Suzuki association, now called Suzuki Music (Victoria).
She is a graduate of the NSW State Conservatorium of Music and what is now known as the Talent Education Research Institute (TERI) in Matsumoto, Japan, where she studied with Dr Suzuki himself.
