“Perhaps it is music that will save the world.” ~Shinichi Suzuki
Thousands of teachers have taught music to hundreds of thousands of students since the mid-20th century with the Suzuki Method. The composers who feature in this masterful teaching strategy—Bach, Schubert, Mozart and Beethoven—are performed by the New West Symphony, featuring violinist Anne Akiko Meyers, alongside the mesmerizing sounds of Japanese traditional music and music from Japan over recent decades.
