Suzuki violin, viola, cello, flute and piano mini-private and group classes, along with orchestra, composition, fiddling and an excellent chamber music program are balanced with non-instrument electives and plenty of outdoor soccer and swimming time. The program is carefully and very personally designed for the ages and levels of those who enroll.
