  • Listening is a valuable part of learning to play the violin! I recommend listening to the songs we are learning multiple times every day. You can find the recordings below if your Suzuki book does not come with a CD. For YouTube, click on the profile of the User, then search through their recordings to find the proper song. You can also find recordings of the Suzuki songs on Spotify and Apple Music.
