Suzuki String Academy nurtures young musicians using the highly respected teaching method developed by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki. Our expert Suzuki educators are equally committed to teaching instrumental technique and promoting holistic child development. We believe in instilling creativity, confidence, and love of learning while nurturing brain development, spatial awareness, social skills, and child/parent relationships.
What is the Suzuki Method?
More than fifty years ago, Japanese violinist Shinichi Suzuki (1898- 1998) developed a philosophy of teaching music to young children based on the principles of language. He noticed that all children learned to speak their native tongue through consistent, nurturing exposure and by listening and repeating. He applied these same principles to teaching violin and called his approach the Mother-Tongue Method.
Dr. Suzuki believed that all children have musical talent and every child can succeed when given the best possible environment—where the parent/guardian and teacher work closely together, giving the student loving encouragement.
The Suzuki method offers children and parents/guardians a unique opportunity to develop their relationship and share the joy of music together.
