About Us

Navigating ideation to production. 

It all started in June of 2015, as I prepared to take my kids to their first Suzuki Institute.  I wanted to get as much out of the experience as possible, soak up every tidbit of information.  


It all started, with a "worksheet" I made for myself, and snowballed into this book.  I'm a full-time working mother of three Suzuki® students who also is involved in several volunteer adventures.  I spent many months in development, using careful observation, input from parents and Suzuki teachers and feedback from my children as they attempt to learn. My struggle to find a system that maximized my role as one side of the parent, teacher, student triangle fed my desire to create a template that not only worked for me, but aligned to the Suzuki methodology.  


After many months of talks with the ISA, a renaming and re-branding, and countless updates and revisions, I was given the 'go-head' from the International Suzuki Association in February of 2017. 


I have learned so many things as I launch this book;

1. I'm learning about trademarks and usage rights.

2. I've learned how to coil bind the books. Each one I inspect, and carefully package as I think of each of my customers.  

3. Suzuki said, "Every child can." But, I also know that every adult can too.  


Thank you for your interest in Lesson Compass, and I wish you well on your Suzuki journey.
