Suzuki Program

What is Suzuki?

The Suzuki philosophy is centered on the belief that Every Child Can. At the Music Conservatory of Westchester, our teachers are committed to meeting students where they are, and instructing them in a way that allows them to grow at their own musical pace.

We build a strong relationship between teacher and student through playing their instrument, learning early note reading, and interacting musically with their peers using a creative and individualized approach.

Dr. Shinichi Suzuki believed that every child is born with natural ability that can be nurtured and developed into musical skills and understanding that can last a lifetime.
