Suzuki Pre-Instrument Camp

Ages:  2 - 3 yrs.

4-week session / Class meets once a week

Tuition:  $100 per session

 

The Pre-Instrument Suzuki class utilizes the philosophy of Dr. Suzuki and focuses on developing the child's musical ability in a fun and nurturing environment.  Parents are very involved in the class and the elements of song, dance, rhythm, make believe, and basic pre-instrument skills are incorporated within each lesson.  Throughout the course the child completes specific learning-based tasks with their parents in order to "earn" a violin.  At the end of the course the child and parent, upon consulting with the instructor, may opt to rent a violin and move into the Pre-Twinkler's class.

Suzuki Violin Group Classes & Individual Lessons

Violins are available for rent at the school.

4-week session includes 8 group classes which meet twice a week (45 min.) and 4 private lessons (30 min.)

Tuition:  $280 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.

 

The Early Book 1 Class is designed for students who have successfully completed the Twinklers Class and/or can play all of the Suzuki Twinkle Rhythms/Variations.  The child will learn the skills and techniques associated with the Early Book 1 pieces in a positive and nurturing environment.  As with the previous classes the parents are very involved and invited to join in on the fun and learning.  The class will also incorporate elements of ear training, singing, reading, composition, fiddling, performance opportunities, and much more.

 

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