Ages 4 to Adult
Accepting students ages 4 years old to adult. Strings are the only family of instruments that come in sizes. Playing any instrument requires physicality, and stringed instruments can be adapted without placing any physical burden on a growing child. Learning an instrument will improve memory and attention span. It will better your overall mental functions and health with routine weekly practice. Playing an instrument helps with sensory development and will improve posture. It can be a fun outlet to help reduce stress and give you a conversational point. Younger children will gain self-discipline, self-esteem and self-awareness.
We believe that the enjoyment, respect and knowledge of music and the development of the skills necessary to create and perform music enhance learning, enrich quality of life and nourish the human spirit. Our mission is to provide a foundation for lifelong engagement with music.
“Music exists for the purpose of growing an admirable heart.” – Shinichi Suzuki

The Suzuki Method
Mrs. Sargent bases most of her teaching philosophies from the Suzuki Method. She obtained her long-term Suzuki teacher training certification through Northern Arizona University under the instruction of Dr. Louise Scott and Dr. Karen Hallberg.
Shinichi Suzuki was a violinist, educator, philosopher and humanitarian. Born in 1898, he studied violin in Japan for some years before going to Germany in the 1920s for further study. After the end of World War II, Dr. Suzuki devoted his life to the development of the method he calls Talent Education.
Suzuki based his approach on the belief that “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. The potential of every child is unlimited.”
Dr. Suzuki’s goal was not simply to develop professional musicians, but to nurture loving human beings and help develop each child’s character through the study of music.
Mrs. Sargent is available to play wedding music.
