Program Summary:

  • This program is for Violin and Viola students ages 4 to 10. Students are required to have an adult practice partner (parent or guardian) who can attend lessons, take notes, and coach daily practice at home.

  • Lakewood Suzuki Strings’s trained teachers utilize the highly respected Suzuki Method of music education, built on the philosophy that children can learn to play an instrument the same way that they learn language: through listening, imitation, and repetition in a nurturing environment.

  • The Lakewood Suzuki Strings program offers:

    • Twelve Weekly 30-minute Private Lessons 

    • Eleven Weekly 45-minute Group Classes

    • Monthly Parent Education Classes

    • Two Recitals and other fun performance opportunities

Weekday lesson times are decided upon between parent & teacher.

The Supplemental Package is for current students of Ms. Murphy and Mrs. Engen only, who are participating in private lessons and wish to add on group classes, parent classes, and recitals.
