As a young violinist and student of music education, Bel Air resident Wendy Bohdel became intrigued by the Suzuki method of teaching music, which relies on repetition, experience and listening. But soon Bohdel realized that the Japanese technique was more than just an approach to music: It was a teaching framework for life.
