Suzuki Samplers (ages 4-6)
Suzuki Samplers prepare young children and their families for participation in the Music Institute of Chicago’s Suzuki program. Parents will learn the fundamentals of Suzuki philosophy and how to set a strong foundation for success in the crucial beginning stages of a child’s musical journey. Children will be introduced to an instrument and explore musical concepts like rhythm, tone and pitch while simultaneously developing the muscle strength, coordination, focus and balance required for continued future instrumental study.
Please note: Parent attendance is required for ALL Suzuki Sampler classes. First 2 weeks of the sampler class are PARENT ONLY to help instruct the parents in what to expect and what their roles are as the Suzuki parent.
$30 registration fee for new student applies.
Classes available for guitar, flute, violin, cello, and piano. See below for class days and times and select the instrument that is of interest to your child.
An instrument is not necessary for the first week(s) of the class. Please do not purchase or rent an instrument at this time. Your Sampler teacher will advise you on instrument options.
Parents are also asked to purchase "Nurtured By Love" by Shinichi Suzuki, and the Suzuki Book and CD volume 1 for the instrument of their class. We will also give you the Suzuki parent handbook once you have registered. We have these books for sale/purchase at each campus. You can also find them at a local music store or on Amazon. Feel free to call Guinevere Grimstad if you have questions: 847-905-1500 ext. 133.
Summer session of Suzuki Sampler classes begin Tuesday, June 9, 2020 with a few classes starting early (please see class start date)
