“If children hear fine music from the day of their birth and learn to play it, they develop sensitivity, discipline and endurance. They get a beautiful heart” ~Dr. Shinichi Suzuki

This parent-child class is ideal as an introduction to any Suzuki instrumental lessons, as well as an excellent opportunity to help determine which instrument your child would like to pursue; also to get professional advice as to which instrument your child may be best suited. Using the Suzuki repertoire, the children will learn and continue to review basic musical concepts such as steady beat and pitch, as well as be introduced to the actual Suzuki rhythms, shared by all the instruments. Over the course of a semester, each instrument offered here at SMSW will be presented for a live, hands-on demonstration.
