  • Individualized lessons with parent participation for ┬ástudents ages 5 and up.

How to Begin

  • The first step to being in the program is to come to the studio, meet with the teacher and then observe lessons over the period of approximately one month.
  • Buy the Suzuki Book 1 disc and begin listening every day. This is the most important part of your child being ready for lessons!
  • Get ready to begin with the best piano you can provide. Have the piano tuned and serviced.
  • Obtain an adjustable chair and footstool so that your child can have a natural position at the piano
