SUZUKI METHOD VIOLIN LESSONS FOR YOUNG CHILDREN
For children ages 4 to 8 years of age MRMA is offering violin lessons with registered Suzuki teacher Elizabeth Kilpatrick.
The Suzuki approach is an instructional method that teaches youngsters how to play the instrument before introducing note-reading. It follows the way children learn to speak their native language - through exposure, encouragement, repetition, addition and refinement.
An important aspect of the Suzuki method is a partnership between the teacher and the parent: the child's parent attends all private and group lessons, taking careful notes and working with the child daily. Admission into the program will require a short meeting of the parent, child, and teacher to determine whether the program is right for the child. Lesson length depends on the age and level of the student.
Suzuki Program Tuition:
$360 for twelve 25-minute private and six 35-minute group lessons (for younger students)
$480 for twelve 40-minute private and eight 40-minute group lessons (for older students)
