What is the Suzuki Method?

  • Suzuki teachers believe that musical ability can be developed in all children.
  • Students begin at young ages.
  • Parents play an active role in the learning process.
  • Children become comfortable with the instrument before learning to read music.
  • Technique is taught in the context of pieces rather than through dry technical exercises.
  • Pieces are refined through constant review.
  • Students perform frequently, individually and in groups.

What will this mean for my family?

  • Parents should plan on joining their child’s lessons and taking quiet notes while the teacher is
  • In order to progress well, we recommend a minimum of practice five times a week, around the same amount of time as your lesson time.
  • Students need to listen to recordings of their Suzuki repertoire daily. We recommend 1-2 hours per day, with a combination of active and passive listening.
  • In the Suzuki Method, parents are respected as the “home teacher.” You can expect to help your child practice and take an equal part in their education from the beginning. Don’t worry, you don’t have to be an expert in the instrument! Your teacher and group workshops will help train you!
