Greetings Suzukiland!

Our program has a movie theme for our Spring Semester/final concert. We are looking for a list of SUZUKI pieces that can be found in movies. The list we have so far is:

The Happy Farmer—The Wizard of Oz
Waltz—The Hunger Games, Catching Fire
Minuet in G—The Music Man
Perpetual Motion/Bach Double—Music of the Heart

If anyone in Suzukiland knows of any others, please share on this thread.

Thank you!!!

Waltz is also in the old movie, “Babette’s Feast”.
Gossec Gavotte is in the old “Bobby’s World” cartoons from the early 1990’s.
Have fun!

Boccherini Minuet was played throughout the 1955 black comedy “The Ladykillers”, starring Alec Guinness.

This is a very cool thread! Reminding us all that the music which has been so carefully selected to help us build the skills to play our instruments is real music and shows up from time to time in our popular culture! What a great idea to devote a whole semester of your school’s term to exploring the interconnections between Suzuki Music School Repertoire and Movies!
