Here is the perfect tool to get students to practice more frequently. Now available are piano accompaniment MIDI disks for the Suzuki Viola School, Volume 1. Recorded by Suzuki Accompanist Linda Perry on the Yamaha Disklavier, these performances were recorded without reference to a metronome and have a human feel to them. MIDI disks are very flexible to use---you can control the tempo, transpose, add a metronome click, and cancel the playback of the left- and/or right-hand parts. Best of all, students love them! The files are in a format called Standard MIDI File (SMF) and can be played using a variety of different equipment, including an acoustic piano that has MIDI, a digital piano, a synthesizer, a Macintosh or Windows computer. The enhanced CD-ROM contains all of the piano accompaniments plus an exclusive version of Home Concert Xtreme SEª from TimeWarp Technologies which will show the music on your computer screen, follow along with it, and turn the pages for you! Also included on the CD-ROM are the listening tracks recorded by William Preucil.

About Suzuki Method
The Suzuki Method is based on the principle that all children possess ability and that this ability can be developed and enhanced through a nurturing environment. All children learn to speak their own language with relative ease and if the same natural learning process is applied in teaching other skills, these can be acquired as successfully. Suzuki referred to the process as the Mother Tongue Method and to the whole system of pedagogy as Talent Education. The important elements of the Suzuki approach to instrumental teaching include the following:an early start (aged 3-4 is normal in most countries); the importance of listening to music; learning to play before learning to read; -the involvement of the parent; a nurturing and positive learning environment; a high standard of teaching by trained teachers; the importance of producing a good sound in a balanced and natural way; core repertoire, used by Suzuki students across the world; social interaction with other children. Suzuki students from all over the world can communicate through the language of music.
