Suzuki Practice Videos

 

Get the most out of our slowed down practice videos for Suzuki piano and violin books.

 

More books will be added as soon as we can record them, so check in regularly!

 

Use them:

  • During practice time and copy

  • In place of a TV show or movie

  • In the background during bedtime or bath time
