Suzuki Early Childhood Education - SECE
Dr. Shinich Suzuki believed that children learn best when the approach to education mirrors how a child naturally learns to speak his or her own native language. He believed that all children are able to achieve a high level of ability in music if provided the proper environment and support. Some of the unique features of the Suzuki approach include parent involvement, loving support and encouragement, and mastery through repetition.
MSSC Chamber Music Program
cello • violin • viola
MSSC Chamber Music Students receive weekly coaching from MSSC faculty with experience and accolades for their performance and education work with young musicians. Students will be grouped in small ensembles (duos, trios, quartets, etc.) according to instrument, age and ability. Performance opportunities throughout the year provide opportunity to develop musicianship, performance and ensemble skills. Emerging young musicians will experience the benefit of working toward a common goal, nurture musical friendships, develop discipline and most of all, have fun!
