The merging of Suzuki strings programs into American public schools provides additional opportunities for students to be involved in music education. These programs vary in design due to the differences in their creators' philosophies of Suzuki strings education and parameters of implementation. While the teaching style of Suzuki in post-war Japan is certainly different from traditional teaching approaches in this country, the success of the students is undeniably admirable. Administrators must carefully weigh the costs and benefits of various Suzuki programs before implementation. One of the benefits might be elevated campus rankings at schools which house a Suzuki strings program.
