SUZUKI GROUP CLASSES
"Beautiful tone, beautiful heart." - Shinichi Suzuki
Violin group classes are offered to students in Suzuki Books 1-3. Children are nurtured in a supportive and positive environment as they enjoy musical games and performance opportunities. Elements of Paul Rolland Pedagogy and Alexander Technique are included to encourage freedom of movement and healthy playing. Learning together, group classes not only encourage musical growth, but the development of the whole child.
