The Suzuki Program incorporates private lessons with group classes. Private lessons allow each child to receive individualized attention and faster pace of skill development while group lessons create a fun and social learning environment and an entirely different skill-set. Parents in this program form a strong bond with their child by attending each lesson and practicing at home with their child. Suzuki is appropriate for students ages 3 and up. The Suzuki method creates a joyful learning environment with parental support; for more about the Suzuki method, please visit: https://suzukiassociation.org/about/suzuki-method/
Students may register for this program throughout the year. A Fall 2018 Suzuki Program parent meeting will be Monday, August 20 at 6pm.
Group Violin @ MAC
The Group Violin Program is based on the Suzuki philosophy but is better for families who do not want the same of level commitment offered in the Suzuki Program. Each level is designed as a one-year curriculum that begins in September though students may join in January. Students are grouped by age levels in addition to experience levels: Beg(a) and Int(a) are for 4-7 year olds and Beg(b) and Int(b) are for 8-12 year olds.
