Suzuki for Young Students (3-4 year olds)

Not all 3 year old children are ready for Suzuki lessons. If you are thinking about beginning lessons, your child will need to be able focus and follow simple directions for short spurts of time.

We understand and appreciate that young children have very short attention spans. They might only be able to focus for 3-5 minutes! This time might include learning to stick out their tongue, blowing bubbles, spitting rice, or playing with fingers when learning the flute.

At first, the majority of each private lesson is a parent lesson. As you learn to play the flute or piano and continue to practice at home, your child will soon be immersed in a musical environment and will want to play too. This is the same process that allows all children to learn their native language. And don’t worry, we teach you everything you need to know. No previous music experience necessary to begin this wonderful journey with your child!

Our Academic program runs from Sept- mid June, and tuition includes all of the following components:

  • Weekly private lesson
  • Community events
  • Recitals
  • Play-Ins

New students may begin anytime!

My 9 year old daughter started months ago and has been loving every step of the learning process. Jenni and Stephanie, the most encouraging teachers, have incorporated card and song based games to engage children with every note. From field trips to group lessons to recitals to individual learning, this program is truly immersive and allows the student (not the music book) to dictate the pace. With no hesitation, I’ve enrolled my six year old son, who has stepped into the program with ease and is also thrilled to be included into the Flute and Friends community. Thanks Stephanie and Jenni for your dedication to our children’s musical learning!
