"I was delighted to be asked to record Suzuki Violin Books 1–3. During the sessions, I thought about the current and future students, their parents and teachers who would hear these recordings. 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."
