Suzuki Violin Class

violinduoOpen to BMS Students Only

The Suzuki Method is based on the combination of a weekly private lesson and group classes.   The group classes serve to motivate and inspire children of all levels and ages.  In the group classes younger children can play along with and observe the more advanced players, inspiring them to work towards a more advanced level of playing.  Meanwhile, the older students work on leadership skills and ensemble playing.   Suzuki teachers use creative strategies to work on common skills during the group classes including musical games and exercises.

The Goals of the Suzuki Group Class include:

  • The development of good listening skills when performing in a group setting
  • Creating a nurturing, supportive and encouraging environment
  • Generating a strong incentive to practice and improve without relying on competitiveness

    Please note that Suzuki summer groups will have an overlap of 15 minutes, when they will practice together Book 1 pieces. Book One Group required to know pieces at least up to Allegro.
