The Winston-Salem Suzuki School seeks to foster both the musical and character development of children through Dr. Shinichi Suzuki's "Saino Kyoiku" ("Talent Education") pedagogy. This is a method conducted in alliance with parents and based on mother tongue language development, resulting in the creation of a positive environment of musical immersion and parental support. The main focus at the WSSS is the building of character and the strengthening of families through a shared pursuit of academic and musical excellence. The WSSS holds the Suzuki philosophy of educating the “whole child” along with the parent-teacher-child partnership utilized in Suzuki methodology as a valuable guide for the raising of children. At the WSSS the study of music is an activity around which relationships are built, self-esteem is fostered, and excellence is the norm.
How to Get Started
After looking over our website, if you have any questions feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The best thing to do to get more information about our Suzuki program is to come by with your child and observe one of our group classes held on Thursdays from 3:30 to 6:30 pm. There is no charge for that, and you can visit as often as you’d like. That will give you a chance to see if our program is a good fit for you, and it will give us a chance to determine if your child is ready to take instruction on the instrument. If you are not sure which group lesson to visit, feel free to contact us with information about your child.
