The Suzuki Program Registration Process

Step One:

Please familiarize yourself with the Suzuki Program page.  This page provides important information for understanding how the program works.  This includes scheduling information, parent education class information, guidelines for siblings, and information on how payment works.

Step Two– Contact Office

If you are completely new to the program (have not participated in our Summer First Steps program), please contact our Program Director, Kristjon Imperio, to review your goals and to discuss private lesson schedule options before submitting a registration form.

Depending on your background and the time of year of your inquiry, we may also connect you with the Suzuki Program Coordinator Amy Matherly to review group class option.

If you are enrolled in or have completed the Summer First Steps program, you can proceed to step three.

Step Three– Complete Registration Form

Once scheduling is confirmed with the office (for students new to Pakachoag) or, for First Step Summer families, prior to our proceeding with scheduling discussions, please complete a private lesson registration form.  Be sure to check off the box that ask if you are also requesting enrollment in the Suzuki Program.

Step Four– Submit Deposit

Deposit amounts can be found on the Payment Plan document posted below under “Deposit Information”.  Choose payment by…..

  • Credit Card: Let the office know when discussing registration; or e-mail info@pakmusic.org and request account information for Suzuki Program payment by credit card.
  • Cash or Check
    • Cash Deposit (Hardcopy or Web Reg Forms): All cash deposits must be made in-person at our 10 Irving Street office. Please call in advance to confirm that someone will be available at the time of your visit.
    • Online Registration (Web Reg Form): Mail the appropriate deposit amount, by check, within two days of submitting the Web Reg Form below.  -OR-
    • Standard Mail (Hard copy form posted under Step 3 above): Include check with form.

For First Step summer families, once registration form and deposit are received, we will coordinate with Amy Matherly who will be working to determine a day and time for your group class.  At the same time, Kristjon Imperio will work to identify a private lesson time with a suzuki lesson teacher.  This process can sometimes take a few weeks.

We will consult with you if we have questions around scheduling.  If we cannot find placement with a private lesson teacher that fits your schedule needs, you will receive a full refund minus $40 registration fee.  If we cannot find placement for a group class that fits your schedule needs, Amy Matherly or Kristjon Imperio will contact you to review possible alternate options or to arrange for a full refund minus the registration fee.

Deposit Information

Please view the Pakachoag Suzuki Pay Plans 2019-2020 document to determine your deposit amount and to review payment samples.  Actual payment plan amounts due for each family often shift during the course of the year, depending on whether you submit a payment by check/cash (discount applied), enroll a sibling (discount applied toward year end), or might have a credit on file.  Your account information will be available online once a registration is processed by the office, and can be referenced prior to submitting a payment.

Step Five:  Schedule and Start Date Confirmation

Watch for confirmation from Amy Matherly regarding group class placement and associated information; and from Kristjon Imperio regarding Private Lesson placement and start date.


Summer Lessons

For summer lessons, the process and how we schedule is slightly different.  Visit the Summer Program Registration page for information regarding summer lessons.
