Still, I've always found the Suzuki method somewhat limiting, though this is based on personal experience alone. I was a violinist for years, and met many technically brilliant players trained in this method. The one criticism I could attach to their performances was a lack of interpretive ability. Though the notes were executed with great acumen, I found most players missed on making the pieces their own, and "feeling the music" so to speak. Again, these violinists were very good, but imho, a less trained player with greater interpretive skills was more enjoyable to listen to. The method certainly has its value, but may be overestimated when it comes to musical expression. Technical skills and heart may not be perfectly joined.
