At the heart of Suzuki Studies at CIM is the strong conviction that "every child has unlimited potential." 

This method, developed by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki in the 1940s, was inspired by the way language is learned in early childhood through the communication skills shared between parent and child. Dr. Suzuki's goal was not simply to develop professional musicians, but to help grow each child's character through the study of music.

The CIM Suzuki program seeks to expand each child's ability to learn, appreciate and discover the joy of music. Once the fundamental playing skills have been established, creative music theory is added to teach the basics in reading music.

Open House on August 22

"Musical ability is not an inborn talent but an ability which can be developed. Any child who is properly trained can develop musical ability, just as all children develop the ability to speak their mother tongue." - Dr. Shinichi Suzuki
