Budding violinists learning to play the, the "Suzuki" way

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

It's summer camp time, but with all the rain, one group of kids is lucky their program is inside.

The North Carolina Suzuki Institute is being held at ECU's Fletcher School of Music.

Budding violinists as young as three are learning to play, the Suzuki way, with the help of their parents.

Suzuki is a learning process with roots in Japan, but is followed worldwide.

And it's not just about learning the violin.

"We hope that it transitions them well into their academic subjects. It definitely teaches them the discipline of practice, the discipline of learning how to something really well at a very young age," said Chris Ulffers, NC Suzuki Institute.

Ulffers says the Suzuki method can be adapted to many instruments including flute, piano and guitar; although the violin string family is all that's currently taught in Greenville.
