Coming Soon! New Suzuki Violin School Recordings by Hilary Hahn
The International Suzuki Association, in conjunction with Alfred Music, is pleased to announce the highly anticipated recordings of Suzuki Violin, Volumes 1–3 by internationally renowned violinist, Hilary Hahn, in collaboration with pianist Natalie Zhu.
The ISA Violin Committee is grateful to Hilary for her exacting standards during the recording sessions. She brought tremendous energy, artistry, and dedication to bear in all aspects of this recording. Hilary expressed many times to the Committee her delight in revisiting these pieces from her childhood, and the opportunity to make a lasting contribution to the world-wide Suzuki community. These are recordings that students, parents, and teachers will enjoy listening to for years to come.
The new recordings will replace all existing ones associated with the Suzuki Violin School International Editions, available as: Violin Part Book, Piano Accompaniment Book, Violin Part Book & CD, and CD only. Listening tracks that include violin and piano appear first on the CD followed by piano accompaniment only tracks for play-along purposes.
Upon release, recordings will also be available for teaching and practice purposes on SmartMusic.Learn More about SmartMusic

I’m moved to be part of their experiences with the violin. These pieces were played with love and care, and I hope Suzuki violinists will enjoy listening to this music every day."Read Hilary's Bio
