Johann Sebastian Bach in der Suzuki Violinschule (German)

Short description:

Johann Sebastian Bach ist der am häufigsten vertretene Komponist in der Suzuki Violinschule. Seine Kompositionen finden wir in den meisten Heften, also auf jeder Entwicklungsstufe. Suzuki war davon überzeugt, daß Kinder, die der Musik von Johann Sebastian Bach lauschen, einige seiner Wesenszüge und Empfindungen spüren: „Wenn ein Kind mit der Musik von Bach aufwächst, so steht die Seele des Kindes unter dem direkten Einfluß von Bachs kraftvoller Persönlichkeit, seinem tief religiösen Ernst, seinem Ordnungswillen und seinem noblen Charakter. Die Lebenskraft des Kindes bewirkt, daß es die Charakterzüge des Komponisten empfinden und in sich lebendig machen kann. Ich bin sicher, daß jedes Herz, das sich seiner Musik öffnet, auch Bachs besondere Ausstrahlung und seine klare Botschaft in sich aufnehmen wird.“

Auch die Themen Original und Bearbeitung in der Barockzeit sowie Bearbeitungen im Instrumentalunterricht finden in diesem Artikel Beachtung.

Johann Sebastian Bach in the Suzuki Violin School (English)

Translation: Mike Hoover

Short description: Johann Sebastian Bach is the most frequently encountered composer in the Suzuki Violin School, appearing in most of the books, and consequently at each developmental level. Suzuki was convinced that children who listened to music by Johann Sebastian Bach would absorb some of his character traits and feelings: „When children grow up with the music of Bach, their souls will be directly influenced by Bach’s spirit with its strong personality, deep religious earnestness, desire for order, and noble character. The life forces of children sense the traits of a composer and absorb them to bring them to life in themselves. I am certain that every heart capable of feeling music will assimilate its special radiance and its clear message.“

Zeitreise in Johann Sebastians Welt (German)

Short description: Um diese lebendige Begegnung mit dem Komponisten Johann Sebastian Bach zu fördern, finden Kinder und ihre Eltern im Artikel Zeitreise in Johann Sebastian Bachs Welt Geschichten, Ratespiele und Informationen über ihn und seine Lebensumstände. Diese Texte sollten Eltern mit ihren Kindern gemeinsam lesen, denn sicherlich werden bei Kindern, je nach Altersstufe, ganz unterschiedliche Fragen auftauchen und Erläuterungen notwendig sein. Manche werden die Rätsel nur mit Unterstützung ihrer Eltern lösen können, andere werden sie als sehr leicht empfinden. Der Gruppenunterricht bietet eine gute Gelegenheit, Geschichten näher zu beleuchten, Rätsel aufzulösen oder einzelne Aspekte in gemeinsamen Gesprächen mit Kindern und Eltern zu vertiefen.

A JOURNEY BACK IN TIME TO THE WORLD OF JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH (English)

Translation: Mike Hoover

Short description: Presenting a vivid encounter with the composer Johann Sebastian Bach, the article A Journey Back in Time to the World of Johann Sebastian Bach will provide parents and students with anecdotes, challenging tasks and information about Bach and his personal circumstances. Students and parents should read this text together. Depending on the students‘ ages, the article is likely to raise many questions requiring explanation. While some students will only be able to complete the assignments with parental help, others may find them very easy. Group lessons are also an ideal forum for answering these questions, completing the assignments, or discussing particular aspects of Bach’s life in more depth.
