A program presented by the Suzuki
Violin Students in conjunction with
the UNL School of Music and the
department of dance begin Tuesday
night amid the clicks and flashes of
proud parents photographing their
children's musical performances.
The Suzuki method of musical in
struction originated in Japan and gain
ed international esteem for teaching
children at an early age to play com
plex classical pieces. Betsy Smith, a
seventh-grade Suzuki violinist, describ
ed the Suzuki method: "You dont read
notes, you learn by ear the mother
tongue method. It is likeyou learn your
The program, called "Music for the
Dance," took place in the Sheldon Art
Gallery Audito rium: After some initial
tuning, and the small calamity of a
broken violin string, the 23 Lincoln
students, ages 3 to 15, performed selec
tions by Bach, Brahms, Handel, Mar
tini, Rameau and other great classical
music composers for more than an
hour. Francia Birdsall, director of the
program, said that after playing the
pieces once or twice using the Suzuki
method, the students can play them
As the difficulty of the compositions
increased, some of the youngest stu
dents left the stage and joined the
audience. Maran Kunkel was the young
est Suzuki student, at age 3. She al
ready has participated in three musi
After the seventh composition was
performed, MaryMurrcll Faulkner nar
rated and presented a slide show giv
ing the history of dance during the
reign of Louis XIV. The slide show
helped the students and the audience
trace many dances from their roots to
the time of the French royal court. She
said dance was a form of exercise, and

I heard one of the MTV vee-jays call
Michael Jackson the Orson Welles of

the point a bit, but there's no denying
that Jackson's videos have helped shape
that particular "art" form. The release

Following the slide show, Teresa
Field and Bob Kartip, UNL dance stu
dents, danced to "Minuet" byJ-S. Bach. -They
wore traditional costumes lent
by the theatre department. Five Suz
uki students provided violin music
while they danced. Field and Kamp
also danced the "Gavotte" by Rameau,
while Wendy Olson played the entranc
ing musical composition.
By the end of the concert, only the
most experienced violinists were left
on stage. Birdsall set her violin down
for the last five pieces, and only con
ducted. The Suzuki students watched
Birdsall carefully, and played with de
votion, intensity and concentration.
Rebecca Seth accompanied the Suz
uki musicians. The dances were cho
reographed by Dee Hughes.
After the program, a reception took
place in the Great HalL While eating
cookies, the students were eager to tell
about their violin talent Paul Larsen
told about his innocent start into the
Suzuki method: "My mom asked me if I
wanted to play the violin, and I said,
Carin Bringehon, a junior high stu
dent, said the whole group practices
together every other Friday, and they
have private lessons every week.
Birdsall was introduced to the Suz
uki method of musical instruction in
1972, when she attended the only
summer camp on the form in the
country. Under the Suzuki system, she
said, "you learn the same way you
learn to talk. You memorize."
Although the students seemed enthu
siastic about performing on the Shel
don stage, none of the students I spoke
with wanted to pursue the violin as a
career. Catherine Howell, 15, said, "I
want to continue violin as a hobby dur
ing college, but not professionally."
The parents attending the program
seemed pleased with their children's
progress through the Suzuki method.
Becky Breed, mother of Suzuki violi
nist Allison Breed, -said of the Suzuki
system, "It is a convincing method.. It
really makes children appreciate music."
