When I Was Taking Suzuki Piano Lessons

My mother was a Suzuki mom. I was the first of her children, so she probably had the most patience with me (as well as the most tolerance for the Suzuki repertoire). She took us to summer Suzuki camps. She had us practice every day. When I went through a phase in junior high of not practicing, she kept taking me to lessons.

The next time you see her at one of my student recitals, ask her how she did it.
