Dr. Shinichi 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 immersed 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.  Violins are available for rent at the school.
