Prospective Students

It is helpful to know a bit more about the Suzuki method of learning before requesting a teacher.  Children learn to speak by listening, not by reading. Similarly, the Suzuki method teaches children to play... without written music.  

The Suzuki method is very popular and is a great way for younger children to begin playing an instrument.  The primary consideration is to find the best teacher for your child... find a teacher who connects with your child and you will have success.

Steps to start lessons:

1.     Read the teacher policy and requirements.
