A gateway to our world-class Suzuki Program, children and parents learn and interact with other families through music in this class, gently developing motor, pitch, singing, listening and socio-emotional skills. Teachers lead families in songs and activities that are designed to engage children in a calm and focused manner. Children sing, walk or dance with scarves to the pulse of the rhyme, song or drumbeat, use mallets with a variety of instruments, take turns rolling a ball, enact song lyrics and read books.

Expecting parents and their partners are welcome to attend for free as visitors. A trial class is hosted during the first class of every calendar month so families can see if the class is right for them.

Suzuki Program

The Suzuki method is recognized worldwide as a highly effective approach for teaching children the language of music. Generations of students have begun a lifelong journey of musical enrichment through this approach.

The world-class Suzuki Program at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music offers programs in violin, viola, cello, flute, guitar, piano and bass, and incorporates three essential elements of an instrumental music education: private lessons, theory classes and group classes. Parent involvement is an integral component of the Suzuki approach. By learning and practicing alongside their children, parents function as role models and provide encouragement.

Suzuki is an annual program that requires a full-year commitment. The enrollment process begins in January for enrollment in fall the same year and includes a required parent orientation, an observation and an intake interview.
