Group class in addition to private lessons is a cornerstone of the Suzuki method. Students who participate in group and private lessons advance through the repertoire at a faster pace and have more fun while doing so! Group learning reinforces the musical and technical concepts taught in private lessons while introducing the social aspect of music making. We find that the motivation students receive from each other often goes farther than that of the teacher or parent. The encouragement and support of a community of teachers, parents, and peers is part of what makes South Side Suzuki so special for our students.
