Richard and Gloria M.
(Our son) has been a student at Suzuki since he was 2 years old, taking Musikgarten classes and then moving on to piano. He has had exceptional teachers and has an appreciation for piano and music in general that will last him a lifetime. We are especially grateful to Mary who has been a wonderful teacher and supporter of (our son) these past years.
My daughter has been taking violin lessons for a couple of years and has shown dramatic growth in her violin skills. The teacher shows lots of patience and I am always impressed with the quality of instruction she gives. I’m so happy I found this place!
Our 11th grader has been playing the violin at Suzuki Institute since 2nd grade. It has been a very positive experience. His teacher is an absolute gem; always teaching with integrity and kindness.
An amazing school run by amazing instructors!! Our daughter is thriving here!!
My son attended a great drum workshop by Mark DeRose today! Super well run and informative, Mark did a great job and the kids learned a LOT! The whole staff was super friendly and they have a wonderful atmosphere. I give them my highest recommendation!
My son has been attending Suzuki since he was three years old under the expert instruction of Dr. Joyce Mizer, founder of the Suzuki Institute. Dr. Mizer is a phenomenal teacher, a multi instrumentalist trained in the Suzuki method. Her ability to impart her innate musicality as well as her effusive kindness and razor sharp wit makes her an especially effective mentor to young children. My now seven year old son has flourished under her attentive and dedicated instruction in both violin and piano. I highly recommend the Suzuki Institute for the amazing community of musicians that comprise its faculty and its accessibility for families and individuals alike.
