I am so thrilled you are interested in lessons! 

To get ready, 

  • read Nurtured by Love by Shinichi Suzuki

  • observe lessons along with your child 

  • begin listening to the Suzuki Violin School Volume 1 CD as soon as possible (available from Shar, iTunes, and Amazon)

As parental involvement is a cornerstone of the Suzuki Method, our lessons begin with three parent classes. These informational sessions are just for parents, without children present. The purpose is for us to meet each other, answer any questions you might have, and prepare you for the vital role you play in your child's lessons. Most importantly, this is a priceless investment in your child's success and enjoyment of this experience.   

At the sessions, you will receive:

  • exclusive studio information as well as

  • a Parent Class Workbook, which will be an ongoing resource throughout your child's lesson experience.

  • a special goodie bag with other essential materials at the end of the course! 

Students of all levels who are not learning violin for the first time are welcome to schedule an introductory lesson. This is a time for all of us to get to know each other and for me to assess where the student is so we can plan on how best to move forward together.


Normal lesson rates do apply, but there is no further obligation to continue unless you decide to enroll. My goal is for us to be on the same page and mutually agree that we make a good fit before starting lessons.  

Students and parents are also encouraged to observe lessons and/or attend parent class!
