At which age can I start playing the violin?

Music learning, similar to language acquisition starts from birth. A child who wishes to learn to play the violin may begin violin lessons as young as 3 years old in some Suzuki Studios, only under the careful teaching of a knowledgeable teacher and guidance from an informed parent at home (your teacher should equip you with necessary knowledge, tools and tips for efficient home practice sessions). Expectation should be curbed but the belief that your child IS CAPABLE of learning should be promoted; one does not expect a 3 year old to understand and recite a Shakespearean Play over a week of listening!
Research on the amazing Suzuki journey you are about to gift your child and yourself, schedule a consultation session with an experienced teacher to discuss your concerns and when is the best time to pursue individual lessons.

What is the Suzuki method?

The Suzuki method, also Suzuki movement, is an internationally known method of teaching music conceived and executed by Japanese violinist and pedagogue Shinichi Suzuki (1898–1998) dating from the mid-20th century. The central belief of Suzuki, based on his language acquisition theories, is that all people are capable of learning from their environment. The essential components of his method spring from the desire to create the “right environment” for learning music. He also believed that this positive environment would also help to foster character in students.
