How can a Suzuki parent help child to practice better at home?

January 12, 2012 21:20

Hello everyone

Here's a video of my daughter Cathleen practicing on her violin on a typical night. As you can see, there's room for lots of improvement in her techniques.

My daughter playing Suzuki violin book 2 Song 6: Bourree

My question for all the violin teachers and Suzuki parents is:
How can a Suzuki parent like me help my child to enjoy or be more motivated during the child's practice session?

Any comments would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you very much!
