Preparation

Each student should review the Suzuki repertoire up to and including the current piece for his or her playing level. Be prepared to play a polished piece from the Suzuki repertoire for the first Master Class. No matter what the level of current study, the student should select a piece from the Suzuki repertoire that has been studied over a period of time. The teacher can readily assess the student’s needs by hearing a technically and musically mature piece.
