Suzuki Program for violin, viola, cello, piano, and classical guitar students

9:00 – 12:00, Monday through Friday

The three-hour morning workshop provides classes that focus on developing technique, musicality, note reading, and ensemble playing. In addition, a variety of enrichment classes are designed to broaden our students’ musical experiences in different and exciting ways. Age-appropriate classes are designed to enhance the students’ playing as they are inspired by those around them. It is a week of exceptional music instruction that is well-rounded and fun.

Introduction to the Suzuki Method for new students

9:00 – 11:00 Monday through Friday. Every child must be accompanied by a parent.

The Introduction Class at the Summer workshop is designed to introduce the students who have not yet started lessons on their chosen instrument to the formal learning process. It is a non-instrument specific class that teaches tempo beat, rhythm, watching and following the teacher, teamwork with other students in the class, singing (and the opportunity to match pitches), introduction to a few basic intervals, and how to learn in an age-appropriate but more formalized setting. All concepts are presented as games and activities. This class will help the children become familiar with the concepts they will be learning when they start lessons on their chosen instrument.
