                DescriptionPrivate lessons are open to beginners, or more experienced students. Daily practice and listening are required for progress. Students should plan to practice 20-30 minutes at least five days of week. The Suzuki Method is a complete musical training method that develops the whole child and prepares them for a lifetime of music making and appreciation! The main tenets of the Suzuki Method are that music should be learned the same way we learn language as a child (aurally before visually), and nurturing the child's growth and development in music and in life.
                The individual lessons focus on building technique and learning new repertoire.

                If you are interested in group lessons, too, please email Professiona class coordinator Libby Masteller at steller4@gmail.com. We may open a time slot if there is adequate interest.
