Suzuki and Traditional Piano Instruction
The Suzuki method, known as the “mother-tongue approach”, allows children to begin instruction as early as three years old. The method focuses on developing technique, musicianship, memory, and listening skills.
Traditional piano lessons focus on developing reading skills and music theory understanding. Traditional instruction should begin at the age of five or older. Students learn in a gradual and systematic fashion.
