Here's what teachers had to say after Playing with the Body in Mind Course
"It was great workshop !! Thank you Zohara, you are the inspiration and great leader. You gave us so much !
We are honoured to have you in QLD"
Yumiko Yamaguchi, President, Suzuki Association, QLD, Australia
"It was a fun filled, educational, inspiring days of learning with you. Playing with three other pianists at the same time, was such an exciting experience too.
I would love to come back, thank you very much."
"I didn't know what to expect, but somehow I trusted that I should take this course ( remembering the fun and play I've had in other teacher training with you). I am SO happy I did. My whole idea about posture and natural playing has changed. I'm working towards less effort and more enjoyment. The sound I produce now is far better than before. I am so grateful to you and your inspiration. This is a MUST course for every pianist, student and teacher. Thank you !"

"I thought I knew everything about posture and effortless playing only to realise how wrong I had been....". Your course has turned my understanding of the piano and the body upside down. Not only that I'm changing bad habit but I'm finding a renewed joy in the way I play and the way I teach. My students are befitting of everything I've learnt from you. I intend to do all the levels of this course. And highly recommend any person who play the piano to do the same! Thank you so much! "

"I wanted to thank you for the workshop. It was inspiring as always!
Especially the "Playing with the body in mind" part. I took all the advice regarding the natural play, tried it at home and honestly it works for me.
It makes perfect sense and I can't wait to keep experimenting with it. What most important is that my hands feel very comfortable and at ease and I guess that will allow me to play better :) "
"Thank you soooooo much for the workshop yesterday. It was the best ever!! It was so nice to see everyone smiling!! I am sure everyone appreciated it as much as I did. I would be so good to do this more regularly!"
"Just a few words to say that I appreciate everything you shared with our enthusiastic piano group. Your wisdom and knowledge is truly inspiring and our group will take this back to our own Suzuki families to nurture and educate them in the true Suzuki way.
Wishing you safe travels and an enjoyable few days in Melbourne."

Thank you Zohara.
You revolutionised my teaching and have had a significant impact on my teaching.I find myself quoting you in my teaching about the 'turning the tap on and off' for phrasing - and have also experienced first-hand the brilliance of your Suzuki teacher training process. You said at your last workshop here that trainees should stay close to the more experienced teachers, and 'drink from their fountains' - I loved that, and still think about that often. Much much love.
