(Volume 1)Dr. Shinichi Suzuki - Summy Birchard Co.
The New International Edition of Suzuki Piano School, Volume 1 includes French, German and Spanish translations as well as a newly recorded CD performed by internationally renowned recording artist Seizo Azuma. Now the book and CD can be purchased together or separately.

Tempo markings are now included on many pieces.
