New Families may register with only the permission of one of our Suzuki Teachers.

To register, the parent/guardian must have permission from a SCCPS teacher to join the studio.

Parent Education

The Suzuki Association of the Americas is the national organization guiding Suzuki education. Their website,, has information for every parent doing the Suzuki Method including the beginning parent and the experienced parent. New beginning families, this page in particular is especially helpful:

We require all new families to observe 2 mini Suzuki lessons online before applying, and scheduling lessons: mini lesson #1 and mini lesson #2.

Families interested in joining our organization, please read about the Suzuki Method at our website and the Suzuki Association of the Americas. After reading those articles, please observe the mini lessons #1 and #2 online – above. If you support the method and want lessons, please fill out the Survey Interest Form on our homepage. We look forward to hearing from you.
