The Western Springs School of Talent Education and Naperville Suzuki School celebrates 35+ years of music making in the Western Suburbs of Chicago.
With an international reputation for excellence, our faculty work closely with parents in a holistic approach that centers the whole child. As Dr. Suzuki often said, "music develops a beautiful heart".
We encourage parents to learn as much as they can about the Suzuki Method and our program, and have designed our enrollment process with this in mind!
We welcome all dedicated families to our program, and look forward to meeting you
We couldn't do it without you, truly!
And we hope these resources help make your lives a little easier 😊

The Suzuki Association of the Americas oversees an extensive teacher development program offered at locations across the country; the Western Springs School of Talent Education and Naperville Suzuki School serve as a national training center in the Suzuki Method, and offers numerous courses throughout the year.
Apprenticeship Teacher Training Courses create a community of teachers who meet together to receive pedagogical instruction from Suzuki Association of the Americas registered teacher trainers. Together, we share solutions to common teaching problems and all of the relevant teaching points, philosophy and pedagogy related to the unit of study.
