Why we do this

Yes, I know it's really about providing a child with a wonderful way of learning about piano, about music, about all the personal qualities that the Suzuki method develops... but there have to be occasional benefits for the grown-ups too!

Saturday evening supper time (actually Saturday last, 'cos I'm slow at posting sometimes), Mathilda had already eaten with the friend who'd visited for the afternoon. It was getting late, so either supper for the grown ups was postponed (and spoiled) or practice was later than desirable. Or we have a suppertime concert. Mathilda played every piece she knows (so that's twinkles plus eight) and a composition and we ate up. Live entertainment on tap! It's good to be a Suzuki parent!

Thank you for your comment!

I've been remiss in updating the Suzuki journal--but that doesn't mean we're not soldiering on. Hopefully, I'll get the opportunity in the next couple of weeks to update again.
