Suzuki Lessons

In the Suzuki method of musical development skills are fostered and learned through the “Mother Tongue” approach. The child learns to play an instrument in a similar manner to the way he/she learned to speak – first through hearing and imitating what they hear, and then through repetition. The Suzuki approach seeks to develop the whole child. The purpose of Suzuki training is not only to produce great artists, but also to help every child find the joy that comes through music making. Children develop confidence and self-esteem, determination to try difficult things, self-discipline and concentration as well as lasting enjoyment of music and the sensitivity and skill for making music. This approach relies strongly on the cooperative relationship of teacher, parent and student in a pleasant, yet disciplined atmosphere. At least one year of Music Makers is recommended for children enrolling in any Suzuki program. Students and parents take part in both private and group lessons.
