    #17. SuzukiCast- Changing Gears

    Parents and teachers often ask about the process of moving from childhood to adolescence in learning a musical instrument.

    The Suzuki program follows and accompanies the child from early childhood, through adolescence.It’s only natural that we need to change gears as we go along.

    At the beginning stages we encourage children, motivate them, create their appetite – for music and learning and dedicate our efforts to keep the desire alive.

    When they grow up, you hope that everything you nurtured them to do, is there.

    Your child pushes you away when they want to be independent.

    Even if you feel hurt or rejected you know that’s an important step in their upbringing.

    In being a Suzuki Parent, you’ve created a deep and close bond with your child.

    Now the time has come to enjoy the fruits:

    Everything your child learnt in at the piano or other instrument is reflected in life in general.

    The success of the learning process is a precursor to the success in other areas in your child’s life.

    The things your children have achieved in learning to play would naturally and automatically be implemented in their lives.

    Concentration, perseverance, self-discipline, sense of commitment, Sensitivity (to beauty, arts, people), stamina, ability to perform and knowing how to achieve level of mastery.

    When the parent steps back, the responsibilities do not disappear; they just change hands.

    Independence needs to be earned by the child.

    Sometimes it doesn’t go smoothly.

    Becoming independent needs to include:

    1. I can do the work by myself. 2. I’m WILLING to do the work by myself.

    In this episode we go through the points that these processes require, and what happens in a parallel process underneath it.

    All which leads to a great lesson in life!!!

    If children are not ready yet to understand it, they need to be guided and helped to develop the character for this.

    In Dr Shinichi Suzuki words: “Character first – Ability second.”

    The introduction music is  " Prelude and Berceuse", Shinichi Suzuki's favourite composition,  performed  by Shinichi Suzuki, Nagoya, 1970.

    #16. Prima Materia - New Matter

    A raw, unprepared, unfiltered conversation about experiences that create newness of being, every day of our life.

    "Dot Dot Dot"

    In the presence of mystery, we experience authenticity.

    Living in the present moment can transfer us to another place. This is not necessarily distraction, it is letting the flow explore us (or us explore the flow).

    Woody Allen once said: “if you want to make God laugh, tell him about your future plans...”

    It can be scary to live from this place, so we pretend that we can control and plan our lives. In these unprecedented times, we are invited to live from soul.

    Art, music, journaling, nature, poems, dreams – the language of soul.

    If we could start the day attending to soul (instead of watching news or social media) we’ll find connection with eternity.

    # 15. SuzukiCast: In Praise of Praise

    # 15. SuzukiCast: In Praise of Praise

    "We need to feel like we are on the right track, especially when we step into unfamiliar territories."

    I use the word "praise" here as:


    an expression of appreciation;
    a way to commend, to congratulate and honour;
    as acknowledgement and recognition;
    as a tool for encouragement and support;
    to inspire confidence and foster growth.

    So... 


    why do we praise?
    Is praise always positive?
    Is there a harmful praise?

    Listen to this episode of "The Souloist" on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts.

    The music is " Prelude and Berceuse", Shinichi Suzuki's favourite composition,  performed  by Shinichi Suzuki, Nagoya, 1970.

Inspiring words on Creativity

I love the thoughts on the creative process. It is so important just to be able to play, not always to be “practicing.” My Dad was the one who would just sit and listen to me play, while my mother helped me practice. She missed out on something special that Dad gave me, but of course I needed both of them to do what they did for me as a child. You talk about the same parent being able to do both, and with mindful awareness, it is possible.

Nourishment

Oh. Dear Zohara. Your podcasts are my soul food. My nourishment as I dig under the surfaces (physical and psychical) that this virus has provided the time to allow. Thank you from my heart.

A Wise Contemplative Voice

I so appreciate hearing your voice Zohara, a voice of wisdom and depth in a world where, too often it seems like shallowness is celebrated as the pinnacle of being successful or indeed satisfied.
You pausing to give careful consideration of the moments that matter, invites me to pause with you.
Thank you.
