Why Be a Suzuki Teacher?

  • Are you a skilled, well-trained professional musician who would like to teach your instrument and work with young children?
  • Do you have a genuine affection for children and an interest in helping them develop as human beings through the study of music?
  • Are you interested in working in a cooperative atmosphere with children, parents and colleagues?

If so, you may be interested in investigating the Suzuki approach to music education. Many musicians who use the Suzuki Method have found that it provides a unique avenue for helping children and families as well as providing opportunities for their own growth as musicians, teachers, and human beings.
