As part of our vibrant Suzuki community, your child will experience learning in a nurturing, supportive, and spirited environment where high expectations are balanced with joyfulness and FUN. Utilizing the proven techniques of Dr. Shinichi Suzuki’s “Talent Education” Method, children as young as three years-old learn their instrument through a combination of private lessons, weekly group classes, group recitals, solo recitals, and workshops with world-renowned guest instructors.
Ms. Wendy is committed to developing expressive talent. Technique, balance, and proper form are emphasized from the beginning so that the player can have their heart invested in musical expression. One parent attends all lessons and practices at home with their child. The parent is responsible for setting up a home environment which promotes and nurtures the development of their child’s talent. The parent must commit to making music a part of everyday life through daily practice, listening to Suzuki recordings daily, and listening to recordings of other music.
Suzuki group classes are essential to the process and are an opportunity for children to learn with and benefit from their peers. Group classes also provide community and support for parents. Music reading classes are part of the curriculum as Suzuki instructors are committed to excellence and competency in music reading and music theory. Group classes also offer students an opportunity to explore music outside the Suzuki literature and other styles such as jazz, blues, ethnic music, and fiddling.
