Policy and Payment Plan


The Suzuki Method is renowned for its ability to work with all ages, especially the young.

The complete Suzuki Program is as follows:

> For new students (especially if the child is young), a parent will take a basic violin class before the child begins. This requirement may be waived under certain circumstances (such as the parent already knows the instrument).

> Parent Training Course. Many parents ask the questions, "How can I get my child to practice more?", "How do I know if my child is doing well?", or "Why isn't my child progressing faster?" To address these concerns, a special parent training course is reserved especially for parents. Not only will you hear from experienced Suzuki parents, we will review the Suzuki philosophy on the importance of the parent in the child's progress, and learn how to work with your child's personality.

> Weekly group class *during school year. In addition to a private lesson, each student will attend a weekly group class. Group class promotes comradery and an enjoyable experience for the students. Group class also supports ensemble playing, teamwork, and gives the child a chance to use the skills acquired in private lessons.

> Daily listening is important for developing the child's ear and promotes higher quality violin playing. The child will listen to the Suzuki recordings on a daily basis.

> Recitals. There will be two (2) recitals, one per semester. These recitals will give the children a change to showcase their skills and support their fellow students. 

> Positive reinforcement. Positive reinforcement is important for enjoying the journey of violin training.
