Berry College's Kindermusik program will introduce Suzuki Violin as a new course this fall.
The Suzuki Method uses the “mother-tongue” approach with students studying music through listening and imitating. The course is designed to help students master musical skills, employ proper techniques when using instruments, read music notes, and perform with artistry through curriculum that is centered toward children.
Children ages 4 to 6 will receive 15 group lessons per semester. Parents will attend each class with their child to help foster a special relationship with them through the study of music. The classes will be held Mondays from 4:45-5:30 p.m. in the Ford Building.
Semi-private lessons will take place in alternating weeks during the spring semester. A recital in which the students play will be held at the end of the year.
Parents will attend two introductory classes in August for an overview of the course, and Berry music students will assist during class and provide additional tutoring.
Registration for the class is open now. Tuition is $250 each semester.
