Learning To Play
Learning a musical instrument is a skill for life - something that lets you create and experience the beauty and pleasure of music anywhere and anytime! It’s also a confidence-building tool
The Teaching Method
We teach in the highly-effective Suzuki method, a natural approach that makes use of the way a child instinctively learns. At home, children learn to speak by listening, watching and repeating. Once they have a basic ability to speak the language, they are formally introduced to reading and writing.
In music, as in language, the ear is critical. From the beginning, the ear is emphasized so that the student learns accurate pitch, beautiful sound, and pleasing tone while they are learning how to play the instrument. Then, when they have learned to "speak" the basic language of the instrument, we can introduce them to other skills such as reading music.
The "Suzuki Triangle" - a mutually-supportive relationship of the parent, teacher, and student further strengthens the learning experience both at home and during lessons. Group lessons and recitals are also an integral part of our student's development.
