Listening to Your Suzuki Piano Music

Accessing the Suzuki piano recordings is a critical element of your Suzuki Method education.

Here are different commonly used music apps and purchase options.

Mattix Music Recommends…

We recommend purchasing the music with the correct recordings and artists. Your teacher will reference the same recordings and that is how we want our students to sound. Different artists have different interpretations and students will mimic whatever interpretation they listen to regularly.

What is the correct recording?

Our students should listen to the recordings by pianist Seizo Azuma.

What does Ms. Katie do?

Ms. Katie purchased all the albums in iTunes and can access and play them from all her devices. She makes playlists so her kids listen to their current/new piece more frequently.
