I want to make good citizens. If a child hears fine music from the day of his birth and learns to play it himself, he develops sensitivity, discipline and endurance. He gets a beautiful heart. - Shinichi Suzuki -
 
Important elements in the approach of the Suzuki method in instrumental learning:
  • An early start
  • Listening to music and repertoire as a natural element in the home
  • Learning to play before learning to read notes
  • Parent involvement and support
  • An environment that is nurturing and positive
  • A high standard of teaching
  • Importance is placed on technique that produces sound in a balanced and natural way
Weekly private lessons from 30 minutes to 1 hour in length. Students are encouraged to perform regularly in the end of term Music School concerts.  Suzuki violin and flute students are also required to participate in one group lesson a week. Flute students begin their weekly group lesson after one year of study.
