SUZUKI METHOD VIOLIN LESSONS FOR YOUNG CHILDREN
For children four to six years of age MRMA is offering violin lessons with registered Suzuki teacher Elizabeth Kilpatrick (right).
The Suzuki approach is a concept of instruction that teaches youngsters how to play the instrument before introducing note-reading. It follows the way children learn to speak their native language - exposure, encouragement, repetition, addition and refinement.
An important part 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 may require a short meeting of the parent, child, and teacher to determine whether the program is right for the child.
Suzuki lessons tuition:
$360 for 12 private and 6 group 30-minute lessons.
For detailed information about the Suzuki method visit Suzuki Association of the Americas.
