Introduction to the Suzuki Method for new students
9:00 am – 11:00 am, Monday through Friday, Final Concert Friday at 10:30 am
Cost: $200 before May 1, $225 after May 1
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.
