I interviewed three Suzuki teachers who fit specific criteria that will help to fulfill my goal of investigating teachers’ perceptions of the student during transition from Suzuki Early Childhood Education (SECE) classes to private violin lessons using the Suzuki Violin Method. I coded my qualitative interviews with these teachers to identify themes in the data. Suzuki programs do not currently provide curricular specifics for teachers who are helping students transition from classroom to individual violin lessons, particularly from the Suzuki Early Childhood Education Course to “Twinkle”/Book 1. The goal of this research was to investigate and formulate ideas for how best to support students during this point of transition.
