“Music is the language of the heart without words.”
“We LOVE Flute & Friends! We chose this studio for our son because the faculty are second to none! I am a music teacher myself, but we happily drive an hour for each lesson because I know that the high-caliber instruction delivered here is worth the time. The teachers are caring, student-centered, and make learning fun. Can’t say enough about this studio.” 
~ L.A. mom of flute student

What is Suzuki?

Shinichi Suzuki was a violinist, and founded the “Talent Education” Institute in Matsumoto in 1945. He believed that because all children could speak their native language so fluently at such a young age, that this was the perfect educational framework. He called this the “Mother Tongue” method and applied it to music education for very young children. He believed that children could learn music in the same way they acquired language from their parents by listening, repetition, encouragement and love.

“If love is deep, much can be accomplished.”
My daughter loves taking lessons at Flute and Friends, and I can not say enough good things about this studio. It is a supportive, welcoming and very positive atmosphere that encourages learning and music. We look forward to our lessons here — they make learning to play joyful and fun!

Frequently Asked Questions

What instruments do you teach?

Piano, Flute & Guitar!

Do I have to take both group class and private lessons?

Yes! Both are necessary and are included in your tuition. There are many skills to acquire in a group class setting that cannot be taught in a private lesson alone.

Do I have to purchase my own instrument?

Yes, all students will need to have their own instrument. Our teachers will assist you in finding an appropriate instrument. We highly recommend that you speak to us first before purchasing anything. We also have a flute rental program for ages 3-7.

“Music exists for the purpose of growing an admirable heart.”
My six year old son started flute lessons this year at Flute and Friends, and it has been an amazing, transformative experience for him. He was immediately drawn to the kind director Jenni, who is extremely focused on the needs of all students at the studio. His teacher, Stephanie, exhibits superb patience working with young students. I’ve witnessed this both at my son’s individual lesson as well as the group lesson he participates in in twice a month (included in the wonderful programming that Jenni has established). My son is genuinely excited to practice flute every day, and he just lights up during his lesson with Stephanie. I highly recommend Flute and Friends Suzuki Music Academy!

“First character, then ability.”
Our young daughters have been taking piano lessons with the wonderful Miss May for over a year. I’m amazed at how much they (and we as parents) have learned! She takes the time to help the girls overcome obstacles and knows when to give them a break with a fun game to re-energize and refocus. Owner Miss Jenni is warm and welcoming, and very communicative and organized. We are big fans of Flute & Friends!

Why We Play Old Repertoire

When your child moves on to a new piece in the Suzuki book, they may think that they no longer need to play the previous one. Afterall, they’ve mastered it. That’s why they’re allowed to continue, right? On the one hand, yes, only when a student has demonstrated the...

The Importance of Listening to Music

Learning music is like learning a second language, which means it’s important to be listening as much as possible. It can be very challenging for your child to learn a new piece if they don’t know what it sounds like. Learning music is similar to how children hear...
