SUZUKI STRINGS (1st Grade)

Welcome to the Suzuki Program!

We are so thrilled to have your student in our program! This page has been created to help beginners and parents throughout the year. Your students will want to open and practice their instruments at home and this is what we want as well. Parents can help facilitate practicing and our instructional videos should aid in this process. Students will have assignments written in their books each week so you will know what they are to do on that particular week. For your child’s success, please help your child find a daily practice time.

We have created a Parent Beginning Student Packet to help all of our new families learn more about our program and help their students practice at home.
