About Suzuki Private Lesson & Group Class 
Students are instructed in the method developed by the late Dr. Shinichi Suzuki, based on the ease with which children develop fluency with their native language. The method focuses on step-by-step mastery of proper technique and beautiful musicality, while enjoying a positive nurturing community of like-minded Suzuki families. Advancing students develop fluency in note-reading in addition to developing mastery of their instrument.

The Rivers Conservatory Suzuki Program requires a commitment of time and energy, and this dedication will be rewarded as your child develops their beautiful musical talent. The parent attends all lessons and classes, assists the child in practice sessions, and works to create a positive musical environment in the home.

Suzuki Early Childhood Education (ages 0-3) – Coming soon!
Suzuki ECE seeks to build on the child’s natural delight in learning and lays the foundation for life-long learning that meets Dr. Suzuki’s goals for all children—to create an environment for children, free from pressure, in which they can gain skills, a sense of purpose in life, an understanding of discipline, and an appreciation of beauty. Through the use of a carefully designed music curriculum, we aim to nurture child development, parent-child bonding, and awaken the child’s readiness for learning.
