Strings. Community. Family. Learning Naturally.

Program Description

WHAT IN THE WORLD IS SUZUKI?

The Suzuki approach believes that children as young as three can learn to play a musical instrument in the same way they learn to speak — through listening, positive encouragement, and parental and community involvement. The Suzuki movement has spread all over the world, inspired by visionary Japanese violinist Shinichi Suzuki. The parent, child and teacher work together to create an engaging and collaborative learning experience. Add in opportunities to learn and play regularly with their peers and our Suzuki students become successful individual performers as well as ensemble players. Parents do not have to have a musical background, as Suzuki teachers make sure to equip caregivers with everything they need to know to help their child succeed.

The Suzuki method is more than just learning an instrument ⎼ it’s making music as a community!


SUZUKI @ ARTS+

Arts+ is proud to have the largest Suzuki program in the Charlotte region, with students from age 3-18.  We feature Suzuki instruction on violin, viola, cello and harp.  We are an active group of families and young musicians, with opportunities to learn and play all year long.  All our instructors are certified and registered with the Suzuki Association of the Americas.

Membership in the Arts+ Suzuki community includes weekly private lessons plus:

  • Group lessons
  • Chamber group opportunities
  • Suzuki recitals twice a year, with an accompanist provided
  • Workshops and special events
  • Outreach performances and community service

In addition to the above, Arts+ also hosts several Suzuki-based summer camps, such as Discovering Strings Camp and Junior Suzuki Camp.  Many of our players go on to join the String Orchestra Camp.


HOW DOES IT WORK?

  1.  Parents or a caregiver join to watch and learn in their child’s private  lesson each week.
  2.  Our students grow and motivate their peers in our group experiences, such as weekly group classes and chamber ensembles.  These group lessons are an important part of student learning and growth as students review music concepts, learn to work and play together as an ensemble, develop leadership skills and have a ton of fun making music!
  3.  Students can showcase their talents at recitals, workshops, special events and outreach opportunities held throughout the year.
