The Suzuki Violin program is based on the Suzuki Method. Suzuki teachers have specialized training. Enrolled students attend a weekly, private lesson and a number of additional group classes. Students typically begin the program at 4-8 years old and can continue until high school graduation. We welcome families of children with special needs. Suzuki lessons/classes are designed to have parent participation with the teacher (i.e., attending lessons/classes with their child, serving as the home teacher, and helping the child practice during the week). Group classes are multi-age classes. With teacher approval, siblings of enrolled students may attend lessons/classes.
Parents may schedule a free, one time visit to observe a Suzuki violin lesson as spots become available. Please call the CMS office to schedule a time for you and your child to attend one of our lessons.
