I wish to acknowledge help and inspiration I have received from Cathy
Hargrave Williams, Bruce Anderson, Jay Gilbertson, and
Carol Sykes, superb and dedicated Suzuki Method teachers who have helped
me to maintain my connection with Suzuki. Also, Yuko Mori, Mitsumasa
Denda, Haruko Kataoka, Toshio Takahashi, and other teachers based at
the authoritative Talent Education Institute, in Matsumoto, Japan.
I have learned much from these teachers. They represent the best of examples
of the best teaching.
Rhonda Harrison Shimano, an outstanding Suzuki Method teacher,
knew and worked closely with Suzuki for years, is also on the list
of superb and dedicated teachers who have carried out Suzuki's work, and
deserves special acknowledgment for her generosity and for the guidance
she has given, over the years.
This site is dedicated to the teachers, mentioned above, and to Shinichi Suzuki, Haruko Kataoka, and their colleagues, whose work has dramatically raised the standard of classical music education.
