Is my young child ready?

So, you want to be a Suzuki parent

Is your child ready?

  • Are they three years old or reliably potty trained?
  • Are they willing and able to follow simple instructions?
  • Are they not already too busy?

Are you ready?

  • Do you have at least 10 minutes a day to focus on violin practice?
  • Can you afford the materials needed as well as the lessons?
  • Do you have time on weekends for occasional recitals and group lessons?
  • Can you do it all with an upbeat, or at least nonchalant, attitude?
