We use the Suzuki method primarily to develop skill and confidence in playing by ear, and we also cover note reading, scales, theory and sight reading. When students learn with this dual approach it opens up the whole world of Music to them, because it gives them two ways to access and experience music. All of our teachers have many years of experience in teaching Violin, have studied Violin at the Collegiate level, and we teach lessons in a positive and encouraging way. We help students set goals, create weekly practice plans and we encourage our students to practice, excel and to enjoy playing beautifully. An ideal lesson is one that is balanced, so it is both fun and productive, and as teachers we craft lessons in this manner to develop skill in our students as well as a belief in themselves.
