allie kiwi Music education - trad. vs suzuki? (6) Music education - trad. vs suzuki? 21 May 02

This topic began over at The Annex, here , when Mudcat was down a few days ago. You can see other replies by clicking the link if you like.

I'm pondering the musical education of my toddler. I began piano and violin lessons when I was in preschool. But now although I'm proficient at various instruments etc I'm not so good at playing by ear. In fact I rather suck at it. So I'm wondering - does anyone know much about the suzuki method? Do they eventually get to read the music, and when? Which instrument would it be good to start on?

My thoughts are more for learning the piano first - you get to learn both the base and treble clefs and in multiple keys... but should I go for the more traditional style, or this suzuki thing?

Anyones thoughts would be appreciated.
