Suzuki Technical Concepts
•Begin lessons early, enlisting the aid of the parent as home teacher.
•Adapt the "mother tongue" approach to learning through listening, imitation, review, and positive reinforcement.
•Break each skill into the smallest possible steps.
•Teach individual lessons to let each child progress at his or her own pace.
•Use group classes to review the materials presented in the private lesson and to introduce the skill of playing together.
About the Suzuki Method
We hope that this introduction to The Suzuki Method has served as an enlightening overture to what we do. We know that this is a lot of information to digest, so below is a brief summation of what we feel are the most important take-aways from this introduction:
•Every child has the potential to become musical.
•Environment rather than genetics will determine achievement.
•Positive reinforcement promotes success.
•Development of the whole child is most important.
•The Suzuki Method curriculum is a well-considered series of musical pieces designed to introduce and review musical technique in a progressively challenging format.

What parent doesn't seek activities for their children that aim not simply to develop a specific skill, but that endeavor to develop the whole child? By its very philosophical design, the Suzuki Method seeks to achieve this goal. We hope that you will join us for a wonderful musical journey that will not only enrich your child musically, but help him or her develop into a sensitive, hard working, aware, and thoughtful person.
