Private and Group Violin Lessons in the Suzuki Method

Private Lessons
and Daily Practice


  • Practice every day!  Daily practice will ensure steady progress and this makes violin lessons and  study the most fun!


  • Listen to your Suzuki violin recording every day.  It is suggested that you attend concerts and listen to lots of music on the radio as well. 


  • Parents attend each lesson and group class and take notes.  Your participation and complete attention will ensure the sucess of your child.  


  • Taking pictures and video recordings of the lesson proceedings is welcomed!

Group Classes


  • Saturday morning group classes are required for all students through Book 4.


  • Suzuki violin group class provides a time to solidify skills learned in the private lesson, work on solo and ensemble skills, note reading and theory as well as provides motivation for the students.


  • Students in Book 2 and above should bring a music stand and pencil to the group class.

  • Students studying Suzuki violin with a teacher outside of Cambridge Suzuki Violins can register for group classes with the approval of the  private teacher.

Summer Lessons​
It is highly recommended that every student continue private lessons during the summer to keep the momentum going and to avoid loss of skills.


  • Summer lessons are available in June and July.  Online lessons are also available during this time if you are out of town.  There are no lessons in August.


  • Because of the changing nature of summer camp and vacation schedules, summer lessons are by appointment

  • There are no group lessons in the summer.
