Suzuki Instruction

Suzuki, a specialized method of musical instruction for young children ages 5 to 8 years, is currently offered in piano, violin, and cello. Following Dr. Suzuki’s premise that “any child can be educated and developed to a high level,” parents and teachers work together to create an encouraging and supportive environment in which children develop by listening, imitating and watching others. Along with individual lessons there are group classes every other week with other Suzuki practicing students.

The free Parent Suzuki Information Session is highly recommended for parents of new Suzuki students.
