Hi: My name is Michael, in the Princeton area. I have been asked to work with a 14 month old girl, 3 year old girl, and a 19 month boy. I worked with Bill Star while at the University of Co. but would like some help with obtaining materials, there has not been a demand for this age though I did the class.
Materials and advise are greatly appreciated.

Hi Michael,
I would check out the www.suzukiece.com website and perhaps that is a good place to begin with those young ages. I teach a class for just those ages but it is singing, and using instruments, and lots of readiness activities. I have had the SAA Suzuki Early Childhood Education training, but rarely have a piano student as young as 3. I would suggest having them listen a lot, and also obtain the Suzuki ECE CD so you can try those songs and rhymes, and have the parents do this at home. Lots of readiness.
If you want to check out some activites on my website, go to www.noteworthynwb.webs.com
I wish you the best,
Nancy Brown, NC
