First Year Instrument Program

Description

Parents are at the core of the Suzuki approach, as they support their children’s practicing at home. This program offers a series of 5 “Parents as Partners” weekly parent-only classes as a unique component. This series of classes teach parents how to develop the desire to learn in their children before involving them in playing an instrument. During these classes, we will cover the following, but not limit to:

Basic Concept of Suzuki Music Learning
Suzuki Philosophy & Methodology
Parents’ Role
Observations & Commitments
Learning about the Instrument
Children will start music lessons together with their parents once the parents have completed the Parents as Partners classes.

Parents can choose from one of the following courses:

First Year Violin
First Year Piano
First Year Cello
First Year Guitar

Eligibility

Only for parents who are dedicated to commit time and effort to start the music journey with your child(ren). Please expect this program requires additional time involvement from parents than any other traditional music training.

No previous music experience is required of parents.

Children can start as young as 2-1/2 years old. However, in most cases, we recommend children below 5 years old to attend the Bridge Program before starting the First Year Instrument Program.
