Is the Cincinnati Suzuki School a good fit for you?
- Are you excited about the musical journey and opportunities the CSS offers for you and your child?
- Are you/are you willing to become disciplined and organized enough in your home schedule to allow for 30 minutes initially (possibly in 2 or 3 short practices) and later increasing the daily practice time with your child as they advance?
- Will your child be able to work co-operatively in group class?
- Will you create a rich musical environment by playing the Suzuki CD and other classical music daily at home or in the car?
If you answered yes to the above, then we will make a good partnership together to support your child's development and musical growth! Read below for the next step.
Prospective Beginners (3.5 years and up)
Prospective beginners first come to observe a group class with their parents. If your family is excited by what you see at that class, then we will set up the next classes and recitals to observe as part of your orientation and preparation to begin the program. We also ask that you read Nurtured by Love by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki and begin listening to the Suzuki CD, Volume 1, each day.
Prospective Intermediate and Advanced Students with a Suzuki Background
Intermediate and Advanced students also first observe a group class and then schedule a consultation lesson if interested in joining the CSS.
