Abstract (Summary)

The Suzuki method is one of the most popular methods for teaching the violin in the twentieth century. However, there are some problems that arise as a result of the approach taken in Suzuki Violin School, Volume 1. The purpose of this study is to identify these problems, which include the two lower strings, string crossings, fingerings, bow strokes, and bow division, and to provide solutions through the use of Egon Sassmannshaus's Early Start on the Violin, Volumes 1 and 2.

Through a comparison of these methods, analysis of the difficulties and solutions and a detailed lessons guide, this document presents a plan to teach better key concepts and techniques of the first volume of the Suzuki method in a more thorough and gradual matter.
