2015 Class Descriptions

A master class lesson is a shared experience. Three or four children, depending on their age and repertoire, are assigned to a teacher for an hour.  During this hour, the teacher will teach each of the students individually while the others watch.  By watching the other students, your child will be motivated and will learn much about playing the instrument. Parents attend the entire hour to observe and take notes of interest from all of the students' lessons. Please prepare a polished piece to play for the masterclass.  This means something you can already play easily, so that you can gain the most from the teacher’s comments. 

Group Class
These are organized by book level. In a group repertoire class, musical techniques and playing skills can be worked on as the students play their common repertoire together.

Piano Exploration Class
Rediscover the fun of music making, guided by your intuition!  Our Piano Exploration Class gives you the rare opportunity to create melodies in a musical conversation together with the other piano students. Here is your chance to tap into your creativity and artistry for a rewarding musical time.  Let yourself go!

Enrichment Class- Fiddle and Dance
Dr. Suzuki believed that music and movement are "first" languages for every human being. With John Krumm, a master of folk traditions, we'll have fun while singing, moving and dancing!  Using Suzuki tunes, songs and fiddle tunes from the huge community of folk traditions, we'll have a joyous hour together with John. This Enrichment Class is an easy and fun activity for students of all ages and their parents. Come to the Barn Dance! You'll be sorry if you miss it!!


The Play-in is an informal gathering for all students of the workshop.  This is an opportunity to play music from all of the repertoire covered at the workshop, play musical games, listen to more advanced repertoire, and gain ideas from several local Suzuki teachers.
