Suzuki Method is relevant to all ages and all skill levels

Do you want to:

  • Discover the world of musical expression through your senses?
  • Explore how your ears can hear and guide your musical development?
  • Experience the world of reading music as a natural progression?
  • Realize your ability to play and express music with beauty and ease?


SUZUKI FOR CHILDREN

The beauty of the Suzuki Method is the inherent support system for young children to begin lessons. The parent or practice partner comes to the lessons, takes notes, and helps the child at home as they establish daily practice and listening routine. Not only does the child have that support, but the parent has a very special one-on-one time with that child. 


The results are that a child who can't know how to practice effectively learns through doing what good practice is, how that differs from playing through pieces, and can move forward quickly. Daily practice also gives them an understanding and experience of discipline and its rewards. 


Another aspect, which is so valuable, is that practice time can be fun while being directed. It is my hope to always find a way to balance with the child's personality, creativity, play, and allow the child to experience the naturalness of childhood while guiding them through the maize of growth as a student and musician.


SUZUKI FOR PRACTICE PARTNERS

Often when  parent or practice partner  has not taken piano before, I suggest that he or she take lessons as well. There is a certain kind of sharing of understanding the challenging points and a deeper appreciation for the accomplishments as well as committing to studying together.


SUZUKI FOR ADULTS

While the Suzuki method was originally designed for young children, I find that it is an amazing method for adults as well, because the repertoire allows for technical and musical growth with such well thought out building blocks. I have taught many adults over the years and 


EVERYONE LEARNS DIFFERENTLY 

Each person learns differently, so we always begin with your strengths and support your needs. I have found that teaching aurally, kinesthetically, and visually, developing the ear's guidance system and developing comprehension of the musical language creates the most fully rounded musician. 


Dr. Suzuki Quotes

"An unlimited amount of ability can develop when parent and child are having fun together." 


"What is man's ultimate direction in life? It is to look for love, truth, virtue and beauty."
