suzuki method 

The study of music develops the whole child:  it stimulates a creative and active mind, nurtures a positive view of self and of others, develops an appreciation of beauty and emotion, builds sensitivity, social skills, cooperative spirit, concentration, memory, analytical ability, and aims to improve the child’s interaction with family.
