Suzuki Instruction is offered in classical guitar, violin, viola, and cello.
How does Suzuki differ from traditional methods of instruction?
In a nutshell…
- Students may begin at a young age
- In addition to a weekly private lesson, students attend a group class comprised of their peers
- Parents attend all lessons and group classes and take copious notes to facilitate at-home practice
- Listening to a CD takes place in the home on a daily basis
- Note reading is delayed while students develop the basics of their instrument (posture, fundamental technique, basic musicianship)
Admission and Registration Process
Prior to registering, a student must take a complimentary trial lesson. During this introductory lesson students new to lessons are evaluated for their readiness to begin instruction. Students with previous experience are assessed for their strengths and areas for growth. This is also an opportunity to discover if the rapport between teacher and student is a good fit. After completing the trial lesson, parents must complete an intake interview during which an administrator will review the expectations for both parent and student, discuss what you can expect from Knight Music Academy and answer any questions you have regarding our program.
