Video 7: Summer School - August 1974 - Group Lessons and Solos

This video includes footage of children of all ages playing the violin at a high level, meaning with proper position, using bow strokes that produce a beautiful tone, and with elegance, musicality and grace. Dr. Suzuki provides an explanation of why and how to use Tonalization with students, using the whole arm using the elasticity of the horsehair to make the strings resonate. He explains that once a student has learned a piece well and is able to play it through without mistakes, then it is time to begin, infusing the music with spirit and making the tones ring and sound beautiful.
