Suzuki Guitar Teacher and Suzuki Violin Mother, Michelle Horner, described in a video for the recent online Parents as Partners seminar on the SAA website, the system for listening that she and her daughter have come to use in their home. Both parent and child had been frustrated by what they viewed as relatively slow progress, despite practicing and listening every day as they were supposed to do. So they decided to begin listening like maniacs. This meant:
- Listening to the current working piece 10 times in a row
- Listening to the next piece 10 times in a row
- Listening to the piece after that 10 times in a row
Try it in your home. Do you notice a change in the quality of playing or in the quality of practice?
