    Elinor, I recently purchased Mary Kay Waddington’s edition of Solfegietto in which she indicates brushing the strings to remove unwanted vibrations.

    In order to maintain a “drier” sound than a modern pedal harp produces, you “wipe out” some of the resonance as you place.

    Elinor, many thanks. That is very helpful!

    How and when do you introduce note-reading in the Suzuki method?

    Preliminaries start almost at the beginning.

    I have been interested in getting started for a number of years. I need to check the application deadlines, because it is my goal to get at least Book 1 training this summer. My own teaching philosophy naturally aligns with everything I have read about Shinichi Suzuki’s philosophy, so I am excited to get involved with it.

    The AHS Chicago Chapter has been talking about bringing a certified Suzuki teacher trainer to Chicago this summer (2010).

    I might be interested in a Chicago teacher training session. Will it be for Book 1? I haven’t done Book 1 yet.

    As Miss Lawrence used to say, “Monkey see, monkey do.” Imitation is one of the most powerful learning/teaching tools.

    Sounds interesting…

    My 8 year old that has multiple learning disabilities, takes Suzuki violin, and it has been a good match for her.
