We excel at developing musical ability in children. Based on principals of Dr. Shinichi Suzuki of Japan, our instructors believe that all children can develop fine musical talents the same way they learn to speak - through listening, imitation, repetition and a positive motivational environment created by parents. Progress is made from skill to skill in carefully structured lessons using a "one step at a time" approach. From the beginning, emphasis is given to excellent posture, fine intonation, polished technique and production of a beautiful tone.
The Important Role of Parents
The Suzuki Method demands time as well as deep personal commitment on the part of the parents. The Institute gives parent classes and workshops which meet for parent/teacher interaction through discussion and exchange of ideas. Together, parents and teachers establish learning and listening habits which extend the training to the home.
Excellent progress of Crescendo students is most easily and quickly accomplished when the following ingredients are present:
Note reading is introduced as a natural outgrowth of what the child already knows and at a time when the student is ready. The instructor insures that solid reading skills are developed through careful planning of private lessons and group classes which emphasize scales, supplementary pieces, theory and aural skills.
After enrollment, attendance at Parent Class or completion of assignments is MANDATORY. All classes except parent class are attended by students and their parents together.
Your child will have at least one private lesson per week. Lesson times are arranged between the teacher and parent after enrollment. Private lessons are Tuesdays and Thursdays between the hours of 4:30 pm and 7:00 pm and Saturdays from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm depending on the availability of the teacher. Fifty minute group lessons are scheduled at various times. Instruction is year-round with 4 terms. Tuition fees vary, depending on the length of lesson and skill level of the student. Tuition is a flat rate per semester and payment options may be available upon qualification.
Tuition includes private and group lessons, recitals, field trips when available and parent workshops.
