Suzuki Method

Shinichi Suzuki's ideas are based on love and respect for the child, and have been adapted to teach many instruments around the world.


Some principles:

  • Every Child Can
  • a very young child is capable of playing an instrument
  • listening to music enhances progress and learning
  • parental participation is much appreciated
  • each step is mastered before moving to the next
  • the child can participate in private lessons and group activities
  • students learn to read music
  • the curriculum is carefully planned
  • students receive plenty of positive reinforcement
