Yoga is an old Indian philosophy dating back thousands of years.
Its ultimate purpose was aimed as a path to spiritual awakening and the attainment of enlightenment.
He also made it clear that the goal of such musical education was to raise generations of children with "noble hearts" (as opposed to creating famous musical prodigies).
The central belief of Suzuki, based on his language acquisition theories, is that all people can (and will) learn from their environment.
Suzuki believed in training musicians not only to be better musicians but also to be better teachers.
The Suzuki method does not include a formal plan or prescribe specific materials for introducing music theory & reading, in part because Suzuki created the method in a culture where music literacy was routinely taught in schools.
The method aims to create an environment for learning music which parallels the linguistic environment of acquiring a native language.
Suzuki believed that this environment would also help to foster good moral character.
He modeled his method, which he called "Talent Education" , after his theories of natural language acquisition.
Suzuki believed that every child, if properly taught, was capable of a high level of musical achievement.
