Recollections of a Peripatetic Pedagogue by John Kendall

Item# H324P


Out of Stock

Suzuki pioneer John Kendall's recollections of events in his life and career. 130 page softcover book with over 50 photographs.

�The appropriateness of 'peripatetic pedagogue' to describe my career can best be understood by glancing at the maps in the endpapers of this book, where my travels, both national and international, are recorded. Indeed, a colleague once called me 'the Marco Polo of the Suzuki Method'. Another thought 'Johnny Appleseed of the Suzuki movement' might be appropriate. Fortunately, no one has yet designated me 'the Genghis Khan of the violin world', although the Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun once described me as a member of the 'American Strange Teachers Association' � John Kendall

Compare the first paragraph for yourself:

Original translation (H2P)
All Japanese children speak Japanese
Oh � why, Japanese children can all speak Japanese! The thought suddenly struck me with amazement. In fact, all children throughout the world speak their native tongues with the utmost fluency. Any and every Japanese child � all speak Japanese without difficulty. Does that not show a startling talent? How, by what means, does this come about? I had to control an impulse to shout my joy over this discovery.

Revised translation (H2PN)
Children Throughout Japan Speak Japanese 
�Ohh! Children everywhere in Japan are speaking Japanese!�I leaped up in astonishment. Each and every child speaks Japanese freely, and they do so without any difficulty whatsoever. Isn't this a marvelous ability? Why is this? How has this come to pass? I could barely suppress my impulse to run into the streets, shouting.
