Group Classes

Suzuki Group Classes

Group classes are unique to the Suzuki Method approach and are integral to the method. They are arranged according to age and ability level. Group classes are designed to allow children to share their music with others, while we reinforce important skills introduced at the private lesson. Another function of the group experience is to learn how to play together in an ensemble. The social benefits of group classes are superb especially in terms of motivation for home practice.

A fee is available which includes group classes, group concerts, accompanist for group activities, theory and parent talk. There are 10 group classes per quarter on Wednesdays and 5 group classes per quarter on Saturdays.

Please look at this schedule and attend the group class that is appropriate for you.
