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.

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.
