SUZUKI INSTRUCTION FOR CHILDREN
Suzuki, a specialized method of musical instruction for young children ages 4 to 8 years, is offered in cello, violin, guitar and piano. In the Suzuki Method, also known as the “Mother Tongue Approach,” children learn music the same way they learn language. Following Dr. Suzuki’s premise that “any child can be educated and developed to a high level,” parents and teachers work together to create an encouraging and supportive environment in which children develop by listening, imitating and watching others. Parents attend all private lessons and group classes with their child and guide the student’s daily practice.
All students enrolled in Suzuki lessons are strongly encouraged to participate in Building Blocks or FUNdamental Musicianship found under "Fun Musicianship for Kids."

MUSIC CLASSES: EARLY CHILDHOOD THROUGH TEENS

Early Childhood Music Foundations | Building Blocks | FUNdamental Musicianship | Basic Musicianship | Conservatory Music Theory | Youth Harp Ensemble

EARLY CHILDHOOD MUSIC FOUNDATIONS (Infants through 4 years accompanied by caregiver)
Taught by Emily Westlake / Dr. Beth Bolton, Curriculum Director
This nationally recognized program develops the very young child's potential in music and helps parents recognize and nurture their child's music making. The program provides a carefully planned sequence of music learning for children who are accompanied by parents or caregivers and uses the natural human inclination for chanting, singing and movement as the first steps in understanding melody, rhythm, and improvisation. Through interactive music making with parents and teachers, children discover the body as the primary music instrument.

  • Infant: up to 18 months
    In infant classes, parents and children experience music by participating in gentle flowing and rhythmic movement activities. Infants’ spontaneous vocal responses, or babble, are viewed as the first attempts at music making and are incorporated into songs and chants. In class children will experiment with manipulatives (egg shakers, scarves, and beanbags) to help stimulate curiosity and foster body coordination.
  • Toddler:18 to 36 months
    Toddler classes are designed around children’s increasing independence and desire to explore and play. Locomotor movement activities allow children to explore their music environment. Teachers will incorporate the children’s spontaneous movement and vocal explorations into classroom songs and chants. Additional manipulatives (co-operband, parachute, and gathering drum) provide opportunities for cooperative group movement and music making.
  • Pre-School: 3 and 4 years
    Children’s love for imaginative play is incorporated into informal structured locomotor and discrete movement activities that accompany songs and chants. Parents and teachers participate alongside children in partner games during which children can share ideas for singing, chanting, and moving. Children explore simple percussion instruments and manipulatives through independent and cooperative music making. Because children at this age have a natural curiosity about symbol systems and are learning to recognize and pre-read letters, numbers, and words, music notation is featured to provide children with a readiness to read notation.
