Suzuki & Dalzuki® Program


The Suzuki method offers an exciting opportunity for student, teacher and parent to collaborate. Pioneered by Shinichi Suzuki, the Suzuki Method is also known as Talent Education because individual spirit and artistry are fostered in a social environment which develops discipline, enthusiasm and a love for music.

Students attend both private lessons and group classes for their instrument, and perform in frequent recitals and a spring festival. A parent participates in all lessons and receives special instruction in the group class in order to fill the Suzuki role of the "home teacher." For first year Violin and Cello Students, we offer a uniquely effective and innovative curriculum known as Dalzuki®, which combines Suzuki instruction with a Dalcroze music theory class. Dalzuki® classes combine instrumental instruction with a 30-minute Dalcroze class, which focuses on elements of rhythm, posture and ear-training. The Dalcroze method’s focus on movement and kinesthetic learning is ideally suited to enhance the Suzuki curriculum. For first year students, the Dalcroze class takes place during the group violin and cello classes.  Second year and beyond students are encouraged to enroll in a 45-minute Dalcroze class at a discounted rate.

Students enrolled in Suzuki Program receive a 50% discount on Dalcroze classes.
Students enrolled in Suzuki Program receive a 100% discount on Large Ensemble and Music Theory Classes. 

Suzuki solo recitals and group recitals take place in December and March.

The Suzuki Program celebrates eveyrone's work and dedication with the Suzuki Spring Festival in Merkin Hall.
