Suzuki Strings

Ages 3 & older, with parents

Göran Berg, Program Director

Violin, Viola, and Cello

In Crowden's Suzuki Strings program, parents take an active role in the educational process by attending all lessons and classes, and by practicing daily with their children at home.

Crowden offers Suzuki lessons for violin and cello

Ages 3 & older with parents

16 weeks

The program includes both a weekly individual lesson and an additional group class. The lesson allows the teacher, parent, and student to focus on that student’s individual needs. The group class supports private instruction by providing the benefits of playing in an ensemble with peers.

Because the Suzuki Strings program provides a group class experience from the earliest stage of learning, participants are well-prepared to transition into Crowden’s ensemble program when they reach the appropriate level of proficiency. Each student’s private teacher will recommend placement in the appropriate ensemble or Suzuki group class as the student progresses.

The cornerstone of the Suzuki program at Crowden is the creation of a cooperative relationship between teacher, parent, and student.
