The Huntsville Suzuki School was founded in 1991 and is located in the historic CN Train Station (26 Station Road) near the downtown core in Huntsville, Ontario.
The Huntsville Suzuki School of Music offers affordable quality musical education on violin, viola and cello for students aged 4 to 18 years, though adults may also enroll for private lessons with the school’s teachers.
Huntsville Suzuki students are very active in the community, playing at fundraising events, mall concerts, and other promotional events. They also play at local retirement homes and area public schools as part of the school’s outreach program.
As part of their, fees students receive both weekly private lessons and bi-weekly group lessons. The school also operates an orchestra for advanced students. All students perform in school solo recitals, and in several large group concerts during the year. These events are open to the public and are either free or admission by donation.
In addition to receiving excellent local instruction, the school's students have benefited from workshops given by some of Canada’s finest musicians, including the Penderecki, Borealis, and Alcan String Quartets, leading violinists Jasper Wood and Nancy Dahn, and fiddler Natalie MacMaster.
The Huntsville Suzuki School is a registered charity in the province of Ontario, and issues charitable receipts for donations.
"I want to make good citizens. If a child hears fine music from the day of his birth and learns to play it himself, he develops sensitivity, discipline and endurance. He gets a beautiful heart."

The School’s instructors follow the teachings of Japanese educator and violinist, Dr. Shinichi Suzuki, and all have certification from the Suzuki Association of the Americas.
