Suzuki, a specialized method of musical instruction for young children ages 4 to 8 years, is offered in cello, violin, guitar and piano. In the Suzuki Method, also known as the "Mother Tongue Approach," children learn music the same way they learn language. Following Dr. Suzuki's premise that "any child can be educated and developed to a high level," parents and teachers work together to create an encouraging and supportive environment in which children develop by listening, imitating and watching others. Parents attend all private lessons and group classes with their child and guide the student's daily practice.

The Parent Information Session is highly recommended for all parents of new Suzuki students.

In class children will experiment with manipulatives (egg shakers, scarves, and beanbags) to help stimulate curiosity and foster body coordination.

Early Childhood Music Foundations - Pre-School: 3 and 4 years
Children's love for imaginative play is incorporated into informal structured locomotor and discrete movement activities that accompany songs and chants. Parents and teachers participate alongside children in partner games during which children can share ideas for singing, chanting, and moving. Children explore simple percussion instruments and manipulatives through independent and cooperative music making. Because children at this age have a natural curiosity about symbol systems and are learning to recognize and pre-read letters, numbers, and words, music notation is featured to provide children with a readiness to read notation.
