The Letourneau method:

The Letourneau method was developed by M. Letourneau, my former violin teacher. He was inspired by the philosophies of Suzuki and Kodaly on early childhood music education. Find out more about the origin and principles of my mentor’s teaching method at the Canadian encyclopedia

I was going to write a blog post about instrument size and choosing an appropriate size, but Rhiannon over at Fiddleheads did a great job! As an aside, I encourage new students who wish to buy their own instrument to check out her extensive range of instruments.
