Possibly the most challenging component of the Suzuki triangle is consistent and productive daily practice with your child. The management of practice largely determines your child’s success. Parents have the most important and most challenging job in educating children. Teachers will readily admit that the parents’ role in teaching their child at home can sometimes be more difficult than anything that happens in the lesson studio. Lectures at the Institute are designed to help further enrich parents for the work ahead. Please attend the lectures we have prepared for you. Play-ins will start at 2:15 allowing you time to attend the lecture starting at 2:20 (followed by the daily recital). The play-in teachers will keep the children until 3:15. The lecture will finish at 3:10 so that you can meet your child when the Play-ins end. If your child is not participating in a Play-In, he/she may quietly attend the lecture. Parents do not need to go to the Play-in unless your child is not comfortable with your being out of sight. Instruct your child to remain at the Play-in until you return. A 45-minute period is scheduled for afternoon lectures and 55 minutes for the Play-ins.
