It is also one of the most extensive programs in the country for students, offering classes in Suzuki Early Childhood Education, violin, viola, cello, bass, voice, piano, guitar, flute, harp, chamber music and orchestra.

What is Suzuki?

UW-Stevens Point Suzuki programs teach using the philosophical principles and music education methods developed by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki. We nurture, motivate and inspire students, parents and teachers to incorporate these principles into their lives. At the heart of the Suzuki philosophy is the idea that everyone has talent and can become a successful, sensitive and caring person through the study of music in the Suzuki method. The method treats music education in the same way that people learn to speak their native language; through listening, imitation and repetition in a positive, nurturing learning environment. The emphasis is on musical and personal growth through individual and group instruction which develops technique, musicianship and kind hearts.
