Suzuki Early Childhood Education Classes are a weekly interactive experience for babies and toddlers from birth through age 3 with a parent. Songs, rhymes, stories and instruments are used to teach musical concepts, language and pre-reading skills, numbers, physical coordination, social and emotional skills, and much more! Parents learn to be active observers of their child’s learning process, and build a repertoire of lullabies, action songs, and rhymes, with techniques for using them at home.

The Suzuki approach emphasizes encouragement and repetition, within a calm, nurturing environment. Classes are team-taught by trained and experienced instructors. Teachers have undertaken long-term Suzuki teacher training and apply their knowledge of early childhood development and understanding of the Suzuki philosophy to their approach in the classroom.

Every child is born with outstanding potential. In the Suzuki Early Childhood Education Class, parents are encouraged to observe and delight in very small developmental steps. With long-term, consistent participation, children grow their abilities and realize their amazing potential for learning.

In addition to the semester tuition, there is a one-time $25 materials fee for a CD/Booklet to listen to the songs at home and a journal to write in during the class time.

During the Fall and Spring Semester, classes meet on Saturdays from 9:00-10:00 am, 10:15-11:15 am, and 11:30 am-12:30 pm at De LaSalle High School, Minneapolis, MN.

This class is ongoing for current students ages 0-3 years old.  New families are welcome to inquire for class information and if there is space in the class.  If no space is available, we will place your family on a waiting list for future placement in the class.
