you say: “But no one in our family is musical!”

It doesn’t matter! Come to our Introductory Parent Sessions on October 1 and 8, and we will tell you everything you need to know. Yes, you may be concerned about getting a good, correctly sized violin, or whether you can fit it in to your busy schedule. Do not worry. We cover it all. Shinichi Suzuki believed that “Every child can!” Let’s talk. We can talk about how the day-to-day effort of taking notes, turning that listening device on, and overcoming that childhood resistance leads to something greater! Contact us as soon as possible. This is the only time of year we start beginners, so get on board with Suzuki Association of the Americas-trained violin teachers in Santa Fe!

    I’m wondering if you ever take adults in to your beginning violin classes. I would be interested in some details if this is in fact possible.

    I am a youthful 65-year-old who reads music already, having studied classical guitar and piano and sung with the Akron Symphony Orchestra chorus as well as the New York Choral Society.

    Many thanks!

    Hi Catherine: We don’t take adults in our beginning Suzuki violin lessons and groups, but I’d be open to taking on adult beginners again, in a Suzuki way, outside our Santa Fe Talent Education program, if I have folks who are enthusiastic, willing to work, and can come for lessons during daytime hours! It has been about 8 years since I’ve done so. Does that sound like something you are interested in? If so, email me at or call or text 231-9242. It would be a matter of weekly or almost-weekly private lessons. We can talk- we would probably get rolling in the fall. My co-director, Margaret, may also be interested in the same kind of thing, but she’s on a camping vacation right now in Idaho and Montana and won’t get back until the 13th of July.
