Our Suzuki Strings Program is founded on the philosophies of Japanese violinist and pedagogue Dr. Shinichi Suzuki, who based his teaching method on the intuitive way children learn native languages. In addition to one private and one group lesson per week (on separate days), TBMS Suzuki students participate in supplemental practice challenges and master classes and present solo and group concerts. This program emphasizes the relationship between parent/guardian and student, and adult attendance is required at all classes in order to help the student practice. Parent Workshops are also offered to Suzuki Strings parents, providing a more in-depth understanding of the program and methodology.
