An internationally known music curriculum and teaching philosophy, the Suzuki Method teaches through listening, repetition, positive reinforcement and gentle yet specific guidance. Beginners learn to play by ear– much like a child learns to speak or communicate. Suzuki teaching is based on respect for each child’s uniqueness and the belief that all children possess natural ability that develops according to the level of support and education they receive. This ability is nurtured via the Suzuki Triangle, including the student, the teacher and the parent(s) as a team.
Through the Suzuki process, children develop confidence and self-esteem, memory and concentration, self-discipline and determination to try difficult things. Most importantly, they gain the sensitivity and skill for making music, and they obtain a lasting source of enjoyment.
Training may begin as early as age zero by means of exposing children to selected recordings of music at home. However, training with a musical instrument may begin at age 3.
Suzuki tuition includes:
- 17 individual studio lessons per term
- 16 group classes per term, including dress rehearsal and concert with accompanist
- Parent classes
