Children learn to play the violin using the ‘Mother Tongue approach’ (also known as the Suzuki Method) developed by Shinichi Suzuki. Parents are an integral part of this method. They are required to attend weekly private and group lessons with their children, learn to play the ‘Twinkle’ variations, play the recorded music daily and practice with their children daily. Each student will receive a weekly private lesson and a group class lesson. There will be recitals and opportunities to play for the public.

Fee for the 26 week program: 30 minute private lessons - $600.00, 45 minute private lessons - $850.00, and 60 minute private lessons - $1,100. Tuition may be paid in four installments. First installment must accompany registration.
