Solid book, but not for self-teaching

I hope this review helps some other students, young or older. My six year old son has been studying Suzuki guitar for a year, and we are big fans of the method. Our teacher is very knowledgeable about the Suzuki method, and we have had a number of discussions with him about the differences between the various instruments. The Suzuki violin book 1 is more involved, as it was the foundation for the development of the Suzuki method. With violin you end up spending a lot of time early on focusing on form and method. With guitar, you move more quickly to playing, and the teacher's involvement and advice becomes very important.
Overall, all the books are clearly written and helpful in our lessons and practice. However, they shouldn't be used in isolation. We have learned over the last few years that a great teacher and an involved community of students are important part of Suzuki. It is very valuable to play guitar with other students and to be exposed to various teachers and workshops. Good luck!
