Suzuki Lessons

Registration Information

The Suzuki method was developed by Shinichi Suzuki to apply principles of learning languages to the learning of music. Just as parents are directly involved in a child's acquisition of language, parents attend the child's music lessons and group classes. By observing the child's learning, parents are better able to assist with the child's home practice.
