Suzuki violin and viola—Register

Andrea Coyle’s Violin & Viola Studio, LLC is committed to offering quality Suzuki violin and viola lessons in SW Denver, Colorado for students ages 3 – 18. In addition to the Suzuki repertoire, students study etudes, scales, fiddle music, other classical music, movie music, and popular tunes. Advancing students have the opportunity to perform in our studio performance ensemble, Animato Strings. Successful studio families are committed to attending weekly private lessons, group classes, recitals, practice daily, and listen to their recording daily. Parent involvement is required and critical for student success. We work to develop not only a mastery of our instrument, but also excellent character skills such as commitment, responsibility, discipline, focus, and a caring attitude.
