THOUGHTS ON THE SUZUKI PIANO SCHOOL was written in 1985 by one of the greatest exponents of the SUZUKI PIANO SCHOOL. Kataoka went to study with Suzuki after many years of piano study, and soon realized that traditional approaches to piano teaching were "wasting" the innate ability of younger students. She hopes that through this little book she can bring to light the unnecessary "suffering" encountered by students and teachers who are using the time-worn read/learn/memorize method of piano study. Some topics covered include: a charming explanation of Shinichi Suzuki's philosophies, the Method itself, how to play, crucial points for beginners (listening, tone, parental assistance), and a thorough run-through of Volumes 1 and 2 of the SUZUKI PIANO SCHOOL. Her personal touches, triumphs, failures, and enlightenment make very interesting reading. All teachers of Suzuki Piano will enjoy and benefit from reading this booklet. Even more importantly however, is the fact that non-Suzuki piano teachers especially, should read this, and utilize some of Mrs. Kataoka's thoughts in their teaching. Suzuki parents should alse be asked to read this book to assist them in their vital role in the musical education of their children. This book is full of good advice, knowledge, and fact.

"I couldn't believe it! I ordered a drumset for my nephew for his birthday through your website just 2 days before his birthday. Ordering so late I just knew it wouldn't arrive until a few days after his birthday. I was thrilled when he called during his "big party day" to say it arrived and Thanks. He's still young enough that getting your birthday presents on the day of is still a big deal. Thank you so much!"

"I stumbled onto your web site by looking for a specific type of classical guitar string, which you carried. I ordered them yesterday and they arrived just an hour ago, about 24 hours after I placed the order! What fantastic service -- and your prices are very good. I play several string instruments and I will buy all my strings (and other supplies) from you in the future. Thanks for the great work."
