  • This approach is based on learning music like a language, with positive reinforcement and repetition.
  • Called the "Mother Tongue" approach, it is designed to be taught as a mother would encourage their child to speak.
  • Bite-size learning makes the approach fun and seemingly easy, although it always takes discipline and dedication to learn a stringed instrument.
  • Shinichi Suzuki (the man who created this approach) believed that adding music to one's life would create peace and harmony in the world and well-round any personality.

    In these courses, you will receive a Comprehensive Curriculum of lessons and repertoire. You will learn the Suzuki repertoire of songs along with scales, techniques, tone exercises, music reading, and vibrato. Each Suzuki song has a new technique embedded into the repertoire and is a fun way to accomplish the instrument, making learning fun!

    See Previews of the lessons for free when you click on each course.

    These are Subscription-based courses where you pay monthly for access, going at your own pace, and as a result, you pay a fraction of the cost of in-person lessons. Watch the lesson of the week, review them as many times as you would like, and practice with the provided practice video. If you feel confident in all aspects, move ahead to the next lesson and accomplish the next aim. Then repeat the process each week until you accomplish the entire book! If you need a review of the topic, review the lesson or email the teacher with questions. If you like, you can submit a check-in video monthly for the teacher. If you feel you need a more hands-on approach, sign up for "Real-Time" Zoom lessons.
