Our Suzuki Strings Program is founded on the philosophies of Japanese violinist and pedagogue Dr. Shinichi Suzuki, who believed that “every child can.” The method is based on the language-learning model of the Mother Tongue in which all children learn their native language through exposure and imitation and further develop skills through repetition, encouragement, and refinement. In this program, students receive one private lesson and one group class per week. Additionally, students participate in masterclasses, solo recitals, group concerts, and practice challenges each semester. This program emphasizes the relationship between the parent/ guardian and the student, and adult attendance is required at all classes in order to help the student practice.
17 weeks of private lessons and 12 weeks of group class. Fall semester begins in September.
