Find a Teacher

Choosing the right Suzuki teacher is important because this relationship can have great impact on your whole family’s musical experience.

After gathering names of possible teachers, observe the candidates at work. Many Suzuki teachers require prospective parents and children to observe individual and group lessons before beginning study. At the lesson, consider the following:

  • Is the atmosphere pleasant and relaxed?
  • Does the teacher expect and receive respectful attention?
  • Is there a good balance between concentrated work and good humor?
  • Are the teacher’s comments supportive and encouraging even when corrections are made?
  • Does the teacher show a grasp of the basic technical problems and demonstrate solutions?
  • Does the teacher make sure the parent understands the goals for home practice?
  • What are the teacher's expectations of his/her students?
  • How do the parents of other students feel about the program?

Ultimately, look for a teacher who provides loving care coupled with high standards for every level of performance. A Suzuki teacher's goal is to consistently challenge students while providing an atmosphere of love and encouragement.
