Cincinnati Suzuki School at the Wyoming Fine Arts Center is the oldest and largest Suzuki program in Cincinnati. In partnership with University of Cincinnati-College Conservatory of Music’s (UC-CCM) Preparatory Department, our program offers the Tri-state’s most comprehensive and robust Suzuki educational program, with an active Parent Organization who support the mission of the program through various activities.

Our mission is to foster joyful music making and a high level of musical excellence in children ages 4 through high school, with the intention of developing creative, compassionate, and thoughtful people. The Cincinnati Suzuki School follows the core Suzuki Talent Education beliefs that all children have musical talent, education begins early and through listening, the parent plays a vital role in the learning process, and environment and nurture influence success.

The Cincinnati Suzuki School provides high quality instruction through the commitment and skill of our faculty and adherence to a unified curriculum of weekly private lessons, group classes, numerous solo and group performances, and musical outreaches benefiting the Greater Cincinnati community. Our students come from as far as Oxford (OH), and we offer weekly group classes and orchestras at all playing levels: from Pre-Twinklers to Beyond Books. (Most programs in the region, as well as nationally, only offer bi-weekly groups).

Our students come from all over the region (including Indiana and Kentucky), and we offer weekly group classes and orchestras at all playing levels: from Pre-Twinklers to Beyond Books.

Your child will be placed in a Suzuki section after consultation with Center faculty.
