Suzuki Musical Kids

Suzuki Musical Kids

Age 4 - 4 1/2
(Age 3 1/2 with permission)

Get a jump-start to the Suzuki program with this introductory class for little ones.

Fall Semester begins in September!

A precursor to the Suzuki method of private instruction

Following the Suzuki model, students will work with box instruments to promote muscle and fine motor skill development. The instructor will work with parents to determine when each student is ready to use a real instrument. This program is a great introduction to a musical instrument and provides a foundation for further study on any instrument. A parent/caregiver is required to attend all classes. Learn how to practice at home with your child!
