Suzuki Private Lessons

The Suzuki method is based on the philosophy that every child has the potential to reach a high level of musicianship, and the learning process corresponds to the way a child assimilates language through listening, imitation and practice.

  • Initial emphasis is on rote learning, position, technique and tone, prior to introducing note-reading.
  • Parent attends all lessons with the student, and supervises home practice.
