What is the
In the mid-20th century, Japanese violinist Shinichi Suzuki began to apply the basic principles of native language acquisition to the learning of music
The ideas of parent responsibility, loving encouragement, constant repetition, etc., are some of the special features of the Suzuki approach.
The Suzuki Program at Creative Arts
The strength of the Suzuki Method lies in parental support, collaboration with the teacher and ensemble playing. Parents attend lessons and support the student during home practice. Creative Arts offers Suzuki Method private lessons in violin, viola, cello, guitar, flute and piano, starting as young as 3.5 years old.
New lessons temporarily suspended.
Start With a Trial Music Lesson
A 30 minute trial lesson ($30) is a private music lesson, not a sales talk. Students gain musical knowledge and begin their musical journey!
Meet the teacher, learn about your student's musical education and performance opportunities and see our large classrooms and recital hall.
Explore different instruments - our teachers can help students decide.

Designed for the young student and their parent/caregiver who are new to the instrument, we will use rhythm and pitch games, singing and listening in an engaging and nurturing environment.

Suzuki Group Violin
Ages 4 to 10; for students who have taken Suzuki Beginnings for Violin or the equivalent
Group classes, along with weekly private lessons, are an integral part of learning the violin and the Suzuki method. Building on what has been learned in private lessons, students experience the fun and social aspects of playing together!
Besides playing engaging (and educational!) musical games we'll be playing arco and pizzicato with Twinkle rhythms and open-stringed songs. Advanced students will be given harmonies and leadership roles. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to attend the class to enrich their student's experience.
