Advanced Suzuki Institute at Stanford University with Barbara Barber

August 6, 2012

It was such a privilege to get training from Barbara Barber who is internationally known as a recording artist, pedagogue, publisher, consultant, adjudicator, editor and author.  She is one of the teachers at the Advanced Suzuki Institute at Stanford Univ. this year, so for her teacher training course she picked out 5 repertoires from her Vol.1-Vol.5 Solos for Young Violinists books and thoroughly went through the pieces with us in a one day session. She shared some of her wonderful teaching techniques that I am eager to try out with some of my students in private lesson and group lesson:) I love the different trainings that teachers in America are able to get through the Suzuki Summer Institutes, because I was unable to get any trainings while living in China and Taiwan.  In fact, we had a Malaysian teacher fly out here first attending the Suzuki Institute in Las Vegas, then driving out here to take Barbara’s class and flying back to Malaysia out of LAX the very next day! Here is a photo of me and Barbara Barber along with a photo of Palm Dr. as I left Stanford to come home:)
