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.
