Burlington Suzuki Association is a non-profit organization. Teachers and volunteer parents are dedicated to providing a quality music program for all children as young as one. Our teachers provide music instruction based on the method developed by Dr. Suzuki.
Suzuki instructors are highly qualified and will prepare your child for Music Festivals and Royal Conservatory Exams, if desired, for violin, piano, viola, and cello.
Each child receives a weekly private lesson and 10 group lessons throughout the year. Lessons begin in September and run until June.
Children are encouraged to listen to the pieces that are studied regularly, daily is suggested. Suzuki CDs and music books are available at music stores locally. You will need to purchase the corresponding set to match the instrument and level of your child. For example, a beginner violin student will purchase Suzuki Violin Book 1 and Suzuki Violin Book 1 CD.
Children are given many opportunities to perform in a concert setting. Some concerts are fun and easy-going, others are more serious. Students performing in groups are expected to wear white shirts and black pants or skirts.
Upon completion of a book level, students participate in a Graduation Recital, held at our Solo Friday concert series. They play a solo from the book they have completed and receive a certificate. These graduations are excellent opportunities to share an accomplishment with their family and instructors.
