Suzuki Music Instruction
Every child can learn to play music.
Suzuki is a distinct method of string instruction for children ages 3 and older where they learn by listening, imitating and watching others. Suzuki educators believe every child can learn to play music in the same way they learn to speak their native language, by imitating others in their lives that influence them.
SCC – Metropolitan Suzuki Strings offers violin, viola, cello and piano lessons in an authentic Suzuki setting.
16-week sessions offered in 30-minute, 45-minute or one-hour sessions. Includes a group session every other week.
