The Suzuki Method

All people learn from their environments, children most especially so. The core philosophy of the Suzuki method is to create a beautiful and loving environment where children may learn classical music and technique. We strive to create a partnership between the instructor, the student, and the parent so that our music students may learn and practice in a supportive setting with engaged and invested guidance.
