Winning the War on Robots!

From David Strom, the self appointed Director of Counter Intelligence on the Elite Special Forces Unit on Robots.

“One of the most fundamental challenges for a Suzuki teacher and parent is: how do we simultaneously inculcate a natural ease of technique while simultaneously cultivating thoughtful, expressive, spontaneous, and coachable artists? This talk will offer specific techniques that can be used in practice and lessons to encourage students to interfere with the robot and foster sensitive musicians who are in control of mind, body, and heart.”

Watch the whole series of 10 videos when you subscribe to Parents as Partners Online 2019!

Starting January 15, this series of over sixty short online videos are created by Suzuki Teachers and Parents, especially for Suzuki Parents and Teachers. We cover topics like:

  • Questions and answers about teen years
  • Communicating difficult issues
  • Working with the “squirrelly” ones
  • Mindful practice
  • Time management
  • and much more!

Each Monday for 10 weeks, at least five short videos will be aired with accompanying audio only format, and transcripts, as well. Once posted, all talks will be available online through October 15, 2019.

Early Pricing available until January 22.
