Suzuki Violin Group Classes & Individual Lessons

Ages:  4 - 7 yrs.

Students can start anytime - violins are available for rent at the school.

12-week session includes a weekly group class (45 min.), and a weekly private lessons (30 min.)

Tuition:  $495 per session


The Suzuki Method is based on Dr. Shinichi Suzuki's "Mother Tongue" philosophy.  Suzuki believed that all children have the potential to be successful at playing music if they are raised in a warm, encouraging environment where they have the opportunity to experience music.  Children listen to recordings at home, and have weekly group and private lessons in order to be immersered in the language of music.  The non-competitive and supportive group environment allows children to be motivated by more advanced students and to be role models for beginners.  Parents attend all lessons and are involved in the child's development.


Please contact the school for placement in the appropriate class.  Weekly private lessons are arranged with teacher.
