Suzuki Violin

Most students begin Suzuki violin instruction between 4 and 8 years old. Learning to play violin using the Suzuki method provides students with an in-depth learning experience that combines individual lessons and group classes. A unique feature of the Suzuki program is that the parent is actively involved in the learning process, and attends all lessons, group classes, and recitals with the child and supervises the home practice.

Suzuki Program

Children can begin Suzuki lessons for piano or violin as early as age 4, depending upon faculty recommendation. The Suzuki approach combines a method for teaching music with a philosophy that embraces the total development of the child. By integrating listening, a nurturing environment, and parent participation, young children learn to play music in the same organic way that they learn language.
