Private Suzuki lessons are available in 30, 45, and 60 minute increments for the following instruments: Violin, Viola, Cello, Piano and Guitar.

Founded by the legendary Japanese violinist and teacher Shinichi Suzuki, the Suzuki method of teaching is one that seeks to realize the highest musical and personal potential of each child through the medium of a string instrument. Dr. Suzuki founded his educational movement in the 1950s based on the premise that all children are born with innate musical ability.

At the heart of the Suzuki philosophy is the belief that children learn music in exactly the same manner in which they absorb language; through constant immersion and repetition in the home environment. Just as all children can learn to speak their native tongue, so too can all children become proficient in music.

Our Suzuki lessons focus on ear training, good instrumental technique, and tone before children are introduced to the complexities of written music. Our instructors use the traditional Suzuki repertoire books and special teaching techniques derived from intensive training. Typically, students can expect to begin playing songs within as little as two months!

Parent participation is very important and an essential part of the Suzuki method. Prior knowledge of music is not needed, but parents must be willing to be very involved in the learning process. One parent must attend every lesson, be responsible for daily coaching and ensure that the student listens to recordings of Suzuki repertoire daily.
