The Suzuki Method

The Suzuki Method's motto is that “All children have talent”. Just like we learn to talk by listening to and imitating our mother’s voice when we are babies, we first learn music by listening and imitating the sounds we hear. This is called the “Mother Tongue” approach

How it works:

  1. We begin lessons early in our life, with parents' and teacher's help
  2. We use the “mother tongue” approach to learning by listening, imitating, reviewing, and encouragement
  3. We break new skills into small steps, or baby steps
  4. Each child takes private lessons so they can learn at their own speed
  5. We review what we have learned in groups so we can learn how to play with other
