Introduction to Suzuki (Spring 2017)

Introduction to Suzuki is designed to prepare students and parents for instrumental study in our Suzuki program. Since parental involvement is a key part of the Suzuki method and philosophy, parent attendance and participation is required for this course. These classes begin with various musical activities designed to focus on listening and developing basic musical skills necessary for all Suzuki students before instrumental study begins. Demonstrations of all instruments offered in the Suzuki program (violin, viola, cello, bass, guitar and piano) by Suzuki faculty members help families decide on the instrument their child may study. Class time is devoted to parent discussion about the Suzuki Method and the Suzuki philosophy. Introduction to Suzuki is a prerequisite for beginning Suzuki instruction. The first class meeting is for parents only. All other classes are for parent and child together. After completion of Introduction to Suzuki and required observations, students are assigned to an instructor. Due to the popularity of the program, some students may have to be wait-listed, who may choose Beginning Suzuki Semi-Private Instruction (based on availability).
