How Muscles Learn: Teaching Violin With The Body In Mind
by Susan Kempter

Not Suzuki, but definitely appropriate.  How Muscles Learn provides information useful in helping teachers find productive techniques in teaching based on how muscles learn movement patterns. Muscles and bodies can and should be thoroughly trained before concentrating exclusively on musical outcomes.
Ear Training and Violin Playing: A Suzuki Method Symposium (About Suzuki)
by Zehetmair Steinschaden, Bruno Steinschaden, Helmut Zehetmair

EAR TRAINING AND VIOLIN PLAYING was written by two Austrian teachers who pioneered the Suzuki approach in the German-speaking world. This valuable little book was written as a supplementary aid to the Suzuki teacher, concentrating on posture, bow grip, instrument selection, the bow itself and a helpful analysis of Book One of the SUZUKI VIOLIN SCHOOL.
Ability Development from Age Zero
by Shinichi Suzuki, Mary Louise Nagata

A must read for every parent!, February 22, 2003
I read this book thinking it would give me information about my son starting Suzuki violin. Instead, it spoke only briefly about music lessons, and quite a bit about parenting and nuturing children. I loved Sukuki's thoughts about how important it is to be a good role model for your child. So many parents forget this. This book is easy to read in a weekend. I have gone back to it numerous times. I recommend it to every parent.
Suzuki Violin Method in American: Suzuki Method Symposium (About Suzuki)
by John Kendall

This booklet was written by the first American string teacher to observe and study the Suzuki Method in Japan, Mr. John Kendall. Kendall's gift is in large part his ability to bring the concepts and practicalities of the Suzuki Method to the doorstep of the American private and classroom teacher in language that can be readily understood. The author takes a stab at clearing up the misconceptions sometimes applied to Suzuki.

Written by Shinichi Suzuki, translated by Waltraud Suzuki.

Whether you call it the Suzuki Violin Method, the Mother Tongue Approach, or simply Talent Education, there is no denying that Shinichi Suzuki presented a revolutionary method to studying music. Controversy continues, with advocates pointing to successful students throughout the music world, and advocates of traditional methods pointing to "gaps" in the Suzuki program. But this combination of listening, then playing back what you've heard is as popular as ever.  Here are some resources which will help you grasp, and perhaps embrace the idea behind playing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star!

Suzuki Violin Calendar
As with any endeavor, a key component in learning the violin is consistent practice. And a key to practicing consistently is motivation. Provide some sort of motivation for your student to practice every day. Whether it's being allowed to cross the day off a calendar when practice is done, or a sticker , or a cookie, getting to watch a favorite television show, or even just sincere enthusiastic praise for a good practice, things go better when there is some sort of reward.
