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 January 9, 2020

Join us in room 217 from 5:15-7:30pm to learn about Suzuki studies at CIM. During the session, enjoy live performances from current students, observe lessons, meet with faculty and learn more about how to register! RSVP for the open house today.

"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
