Suzuki Program Group Classes

Thursdays at Deer Park School, 23 Ferndale Ave. (Yonge and St. Clair)

An essential component of the Suzuki Method. All students registered with Suzuki teachers are strongly recommended to participate in Group lessons at least until the end of Book Two.

At Group Classes, the students’ learning is enhanced by interacting with other students.
Basic techniques and repertoire review are worked on. Musical friendships are made which help to sustain the young players’ interest.

New this year! Suzuki Guitar

All instructors have Suzuki Association of the Americas certification and experience.

“I can’t actually remember a time when I wasn’t playing in Suzuki groups, String Orchestra or ensembles of some sort. This is one of the things that kept me going in music – I didn’t want to lose out on hanging out with all my friends!”

— Jonathan Crow, Concertmaster of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra
