The NAU Community Music and Dance Academy offers instruction in the Suzuki method for violin, viola, and cello players. The Suzuki curriculum provides instruction in group class and individual lesson settings by talented and experienced teachers. Students in the Suzuki program have the opportunity to perform in recital and throughout the community. Parents and students will be fully immersed in the philosophy while the parent trains and learns in parent classes as well as alongside the child in the classroom.
Students must be four years old by the beginning of the Parent Beginner class; for students who have not had any schooling (e.g. pre-school, kindergarten, etc.), we recommend at least one semester as an Academy student in a dance and/or Music & Movement class before enrolling in the Parent Beginner class.
