VERY helpful! These teachers and parents sharing from their years of experience… Very worthwhile!

Music Teachers Helper—for individual teachers
Studio Helper—for entire music studios or schools

They are useful—especially for new Suzuki families who are still figuring out how to institute daily practice and keep things fun and wonderful for their little ones. My son’s teacher signed up her entire studio a few years ago when my son was about 5.5 and working on book 1 and that’s how I was first introduced to the Parents as Partners series. I’ve signed up every year since then. You should know that most of the videos are very amateurish and the sound and visual quality can be so-so with some of them. And some of the videos are recorded lectures or panel presentations at different Suzuki Institutes so they may not be very dynamic in their presentation. Even so there is often very good information in these videos so don’t let the production quality bother you. Not everything will be useful to you, but I definitely found many of them very helpful.

I was a new Suzuki parent last year and it was the best $8 I spent on music education.

These videos are always helpful, and give me good inspiration for topics at my parent meetings. The shorter, right-to-the-point ones are best for those of us with busy lives/teaching schedules.
