Suzuki Music Lessons

The Suzuki Method, developed by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki, is based on the evidence that talent is a product of environment rather than heredity. The learning process is broken down into small steps so that the child achieves accomplishment at every level and learns at their own pace. Parents are critical to the learning process with this method and attend every lesson.

The CCM Preparatory Suzuki program offers classes in this acclaimed musical learning system in piano and strings (violin, viola and cello) for children ages 4 and older. Classes are taught by trained Suzuki faculty.

Music Theory Classes

CCM Prep offers individual music theory classes for youths and adults as well as classes for ensemble musicians. Placement is determined by a theory test. Please note: Students enrolled in private lessons at CCM Prep receive a discount for theory classes.
