Introduction to the Suzuki Method for new students

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

Cost: $200 before May 31, $225 after May 31

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.

Suzuki Early Childhood Education for babies/toddlers birth 
through age 3

9:00-10:00 am, Monday through Friday

Dr. Suzuki believed that a great window of opportunity in a child’s life is opened between birth and the age of three. It is in these first years that visual, spatial awareness and literacy development begins. He also believed that children need nurturing human interaction in order to develop both physically and emotionally, and that parents are the most important influence in encouraging the child’s potential. The Suzuki Early Childhood Education (ECE) Program emphasizes the natural development of the infant from birth. It stimulates a rich, learning partnership between parents and teachers.
