Suzuki 101 for Parents and Students

For beginning violin, viola, and cello students and their parent(s) 


NOTE: Individual Suzuki lessons and group classes will be conducted in-person per Hochstein’s safety plan.


Because parents play such a vital role in the Suzuki learning method, parent education is a requirement of the program and is included as part of the Suzuki Strings fee. Suzuki 101 is the supplemental group class for 3- to 5-year-old beginners and their parents taken in conjunction with individual Suzuki lessons. Please read the Group Class Attendance Policy.

Students and parents learn ways to integrate the instrument-learning process into family life with an emphasis on the Suzuki philosophy, instrument care, and understanding and internalizing the “Twinkle” rhythms through a variety of musical games and movements. Students and parents in Suzuki Strings 101 transition to Pre-twinkle classes in the fall. Parents will need a full-size instrument to assist in learning the basic techniques, while their children begin on a “box” instrument. 

FEE: Included as part of Suzuki individual lesson fee.
