The Suzuki Method is an approach to learning how to play music. There is an emphasis on listening and the development of beautiful tone and musical expression.
The Suzuki Method has an international curriculum and repertoire. This enables Suzuki students from all over the world to play together.
Suzuki Community Strings provides individual and group instruction in violin. Group classes are elemental to the Suzuki Method. Group lessons are a place where students receive encouragement and challenges from their peers. Playing regularly in a group fosters self-confidence and ensemble skills.
Students of music are never too old to learn violin by way of the Suzuki Method. Regular listening, practice, and participation are the formula for efficient learning.
Young children must have an adult practice partner who attends lessons and is their home-teacher.
Suzuki Community Strings is located in Troy, New York.
Instead of resigning ourselves to the notion that our shortcomings are innate, we ought to recognize that as long as each of us tries diligently, we are all capable of becoming worthy human beings and of acquiring new skills. ~Shin'ichi Suzuki
Throughout the pandemic, Suzuki Community Strings has expanded to provide daily and weekly ensemble playing, via online platforms including JamKazam, SonoBus, CleanFeed, and Zoom. Group classes and ensemble playing is supported, in part, by a generous grant from SHAR Music. Thank you, SHAR!
