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.

The Suzuki Program is designed to offer high-quality instruction in the safest way possible, including virtually and using a hybrid format, as the situation requires. The program is currently accepting applications for Fall 2021 enrollment - apply today!

Join us for an information session on Thursday, May 20, 7-8pm, to learn more about the Sato Center for Suzuki Studies, hear from Suzuki faculty and ask questions about the program. Register here

Parents looking to learn more about Dr. Shinichi Suzuki’s core method should sign up for the Suzuki Summer Parent Course! During the course, you will explore the important role you play in your child’s musical development. 

"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
