Suzuki philosophy informs the policies of the school and its curriculum. Suzuki students take part in an integrated practise routine of: individual lessons, home practise, periodic group work, piano recitals, and master classes. Our children are nurtured, from the beginning, to build their natural talents in a group context that celebrates sharing their musical progress and interests. Public performance is a cornerstone of the Suzuki method, as it helps to build confidence to begin playing publicly at a young age. Our children perform often, and generally to a high standard.
