    About Suzuki Teaching



    The Suzuki "Mother Tongue" concept compares learning music to learning your native language.

    First a student listens, constantly, to the sounds to be produced.

    Efforts toward the first sounds are consistently repeated ("mama", "dada") and highly encouraged. "Good! again; good!, again."

    Reading is added only after sound production is well established

    The "Suzuki Triangle", the working relationship of student-parent-teacher, must be consistent and have ongoing communication.

    In the beginning, parents take responsibility for repetition (practice) like they do with tooth brushing and bathing.

    As the student grows into late elementary and middle school years the responsibility for practice transfers from parental discipline to student self-discipline.



For summer, I will be teaching June 1 through 26, and July 6 through 24. No lessons the week of July 4th.  Your time and day remain the same. The two available packages are 4 lessons and 7 lessons. Lessons are not required to be within a single month. However, I don't recommend a schedule of every 2 weeks because too much skill is lost between lessons.
 
Seven lesson package -- 30 minutes $180; 45 minutes $270; 60 minutes $360
Four lesson package -- 30 minute $110; 45 minutes $155; 60 minutes $220

We will continue with Skype until the Covid-19 situation calms down, and we feel confident in our safety.
