The William Pu Music Academy Suzuki Violin Program is conducted by the early childhood education specialists, Virginia Sloan and Elisa Street (violin), Clark Carruth, (violin & viola) and Bonnie Cohan (cello). Emphasis is on playing from a very young age, typically starting formal instruction from as young as 4 years old. Students receive both an individual lesson and 30-minute group class each week.
This combination of private lessons and group classes lies at the heart of Dr. Suzuki’s philosophy. Private lessons develop a student’s personal understanding. Group classes help students share their experiences with others in a fun and non-competitive environment.
While this parental involvement is indirect, they can offer the praise and support which makes learning more productive. For more about Virginia Sloan, Elisa Street and other faculty members click here.
