"Every child can"

Suzuki

“Music is the language of the heart without words.” -Shinichi Suzuki

The Suzuki philosophy is based on the concept that all children can succeed in music when provided with the right environment, great teaching, and parental support. Early music reading is an important part of the Conservatory’s approach, and our Suzuki students learn through listening, imitation, and repetition.

The group class reinforces what is learned in the private lesson, builds ensemble skills, and creates a nurturing musical community that motivates the student to practice at home. The basics of chamber music and orchestral playing start here!

Each member of our Suzuki faculty is a recognized professional musician who has undertaken the rigorous additional training to qualify as a Suzuki teacher. We accept only the most skilled and experienced musicians to teach in our Suzuki program.
