Suzuki studies at CIM's Sato Center for Suzuki Studies evoke the principles of the Suzuki method, which are designed to build character through music studies. CIM offers studies in violin, viola, cello, bass and piano with emphasis on private and group lessons. After one year of private lessons, students will enroll in a Suzuki Theory class to further their studies. Parents are important to student success and take part in orientation activities and taught techniques for home instruction.
