From the Paper:"The Suzuki violin repertoire, or that associated with the teaching methodologies of Dr. Shinichi Suzuki (1898-1998), had its beginnings in 1950 when Dr. Suzuki founded the Saino Kyoiku Kinkyu-kai (school of music education) in Matsumoto, Japan, where he began to teach violin playing through his specialized method in accordance with his own musical philosophies. By 1972, the "Suzuki Method" had spread throughout Japan and abroad as a result of other music teachers accepting his principles. Following this, additional materials were developed for other instruments, such as the viola, cello and the piano. Even today, his teaching methods live on in university studios, primary schools and musical institutes around the world."
