THE SUZUKI METHOD
"Character First, Ability Second" - Dr. Suzuki
The Suzuki Method, created by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki is based on a mother-tongue approach. The guiding principle was that any child who is properly trained can develop musical ability just as all children develop the ability to speak their mother tongue. The potential of every child is unlimited.
Practice can be challenging for students and parents.
Where do we start when we feel like our practice routine isn't going well?
The following five questions parents can ask themselves:
1. PLANNING - did we start today's practice with
clear practice plan in mind?
2. ATTITUDE - were you able to get practice started without a struggle?
3. ATTENTION - what part of today's practice held your child's most attention?
4. TIMING - did the practice end before your child asked for it to end?
5. RESULTS - what was the end result of today's practice?
Which of these five areas do you think you may need to address first?
IN-PERSON & REMOTE LEARNING DURING PANDEMIC
THE ACADEMY offers both in-person and on-line instructions. Families have an option to have their lessons in either format. All group classes will resume in outdoor setting once the weather allows.
NOTE: We follow a safe path forward by reducing number of occupants in the building, spacing the lessons in between. We have custom-built a full-height clear plastic shield separating student and a teacher, disinfecting of used spaces, providing hand sanitizers and wipes, disinfecting different touch points, and increased cleaning cycles between the lessons.

This ensemble is dedicated to the study, rehearsal, and performance of jazz music. The instrumentation will consist of a rhythm section (piano, vibraphone, guitar, bass, or drums) and one to four other instruments (flute, trumpet, saxophone, violin, or cello), depending on balance and ability level. Material will be selected primarily from the jazz canon and supplemented by traditional melodies or popular classical music.
Violin students Books 1 and 2, where students will learn how to play Suzuki Repertoire in a group setting. Beginner students play and model advanced students which will inspire them to work towards a more advanced level of playing. Meanwhile, advanced students work on ensemble/group playing skills as well as learning to be a “role-model” for younger.
