#beginquote# #beginquote# I found the products of the Suzuki method robotic and rather sad, but, as Maintube points out, this was a long time back, and as a teaching method it came to notice during the onset of Outcomes-based education, along with several other faddish new-age teachniques. Outcomes is still with us, although much out of favor and discredited, Suzuki seems, thankfully, here at least, to have disappeared into that great Post-Modern Lava-Lamp lit vault in the sky, along with whole-word teaching of reading. Kodaly is a very effective method for young children, and is still very popular. It applies well to Keyboards. I find five is a good age is start, insofar as the attention span is viable in a 30 min lesson context, and students have begun to form distinctive likes and dislikes in music styles ( and in music teachers, as well.) #endquote# Thanks, Pete, for giving me some insight on the Suzuki method. Since I only teach winds and percussion, I am kinda out of touch as far as string methods. #endquote#
