Podcast: Takako Nishizaki talks about studying with Shinichi Suzuki

Although millions and millions of music students know the name Shinichi Suzuki, few of them have ever had the chance to me, let alone study with him. In this podcast, violinist Takako Nishizaki talks about being one of Suzuki’s first students, and how those experiences inform her own ideas as a teacher today. Musical highlights in the podcast feature her playing the pieces she would have first studied with Maestro Suzuki. She is accompanied by pianist Terence Dennis, and the Strings of the National Youth Orchestra of New Zealand, conducted by Peter Walls.
