Frequently Asked Questions
When do private lessons take place? Private lessons on violin and viola are taught Tuesday to Friday, starting at 10:00am and ending around 6:30pm. Cello lessons are taught on Saturdays twice a month. It is preferable to schedule younger children at their best time for concentration, usually earlier in the day. When do group lessons take place? Violin group lessons are held every other Thursday evening at the Suzuki School approximately 15 times from September through May. When enough viola and cello students enroll, group classes are scheduled on these instruments as well. If there are not enough viola and cello students to form a group, these instruments will be integrated into ensemble playing whenever possible. In addition, your child will participate in recitals and large group concerts involving the entire School.
Can I take group lessons only? No, Huntsville Suzuki School students must sign up for both private and group lessons. How much are the fees? Current fees for violin and viola lessons are listed on the Violin/Viola Registration Form. Please contact us for Cello Lesson fees. My child does not have an instrument. How would I go about purchasing one? Each student needs to have his or her own instrument prior to the start of lessons. Students need to be sized by the teacher or an instrument dealer before purchasing an instrument of the correct size. Many students opt to buy or rent an instrument in Huntsville or Toronto and trade it in for the next size as the child grows. The School can provide information about instruments and instrument dealers upon request. The school maintains a list of parents who currently have a violin or cello for sale, and has several heavily used violins, violas and cellos for rent. For more information, please use our contact form , or call us at (705) 788-0027. We look forward to meeting you and your child!
