Jane Afia

Version 5“In 1976 I had graduated from the Royal College of Music but knew nothing about Suzuki as there was so very little Suzuki teaching in England. I went to my first Suzuki music camp to teach the more advanced children. I have a vivid memory of a group of children playing Perpetual Motion outside and walking around. When they repeated the music with a descant I was totally captivated by their ease of playing and their beautiful sound and at that moment I decided to learn all I could about how to teach my students the Suzuki way.”

Forty years later she has enjoyed a wonderful career as a teacher and player. 

She is now a qualified Suzuki violin teacher trainer, and is manager of the Lauderdale Suzuki Group.

Her three children were all raised through the Suzuki method and have all become professional musicians.
