Practicing daily is crucial. An intense daily practice schedule is not always realistic. Practice is not always done with the instrument. Listening to your CD in the car or while eating breakfast is considered part of practice. Keep practice consistent and make it part of your daily routine if you want to see progress and success. The parent involvement with scheduling practice is very important to the younger students who lack the self-discipline to plan their day.
“You don’t have to practice every day, only the days that you eat.” –Shinichi Suzuki
Group classes are available if we have at least 4 students of similar age/ability register together.
Classes focus on improvisation, fiddle, and the Suzuki books pre-twinkle to book 10.
Each fall and spring semester will have 10-12 classes plus performances.
Group classes are intended to inspire and motivate students through reviewing materials already
presented to them in private lessons, playing games with peers, and learn
from the more advanced students.
Certificates, Gift cards, Ribbons, Stickers, etc. will be awarded to those who show excellent practice techniques.
2 recitals will be scheduled each year for students to play for their families and peers. Other community performances may also be available for students.
Please notify Sargent Strings of any health problems or other disabilities that may be applicable.
The Studio follows the school schedule and takes off the weeks of Christmas Break, Spring Break, and other national holidays. Please check the calendar for up to date information.
