Suzuki is a unique method for teaching young
play musical instruments. Our Suzuki
instructors have all been trained by registered Suzuki Association of
Americas (SAA) teacher trainers. Suzuki
instruction is currently offered in guitar, piano, and violin. Children
as young as four years old may register for Suzuki instruction.
Nearly 50 years ago, Shinichi Suzuki realized that the
principles of how children learned to speak their native language could be
applied to learning music. Suzuki called
his method the “mother-tongue approach.” He included the ideas of parent responsibility, loving encouragement, and
constant repetition as features of the Suzuki approach.
Private lessons and group classes are included in
each Suzuki session. Parents are
required to attend the lessons as they will be the coaches in home
Before registering it is required for a parent, and child if possible, to attend a lesson or class observation to gain a deeper understanding of the method.
Suzuki parents are also required to attend an
educational session which will be held once in early September/late
August and once in early January. All Suzuki parents are required to
read Shinichi Suzuki's book "Nurtured by Love" in order to get a firm understanding of the method and how it was developed. Please also visit the Suzuki Association website for more information and please consider attending the one day "Every Child Can" course that is periodically offered by the association.
