How are Suzuki lessons different than traditional lessons?
• Parental involvement is integral with the Suzuki method
• Suzuki students learn by ear and by rote
• Suzuki students may begin at an early age
• In addition to weekly private lessons, Suzuki students attend 10 group classes per semester
Private Suzuki-inspired lessons adhere to the Conservatory’s fall and spring academic calendar. Group classes are included in the lesson fee.
