Where words fail, music speaks

Where words fail, music speaks

In 1961, as guest of honour at a concert of 400 Suzuki-trained children in Tokyo, the world-famous cellist Pablo Casals was so moved by what he saw and heard he addresses the audience with tears in his eyes: "Perhaps it is music that will save the world." Shinichi Suzuki developed his education method in the years after World War II when Japan was torn apart, homes and communities destroyed, in the firm belief that through music human relationships might be rebuilt and peace restored - uniting families and ultimately nations.
