The Hammond Suzuki Studio is committed to creating a musical community to support every student and family throughout their Suzuki Violin journey. Working together as a team, students, parents and teacher develop the best environment for enriching musical experiences.
Musical ability is not an inborn talent but an ability which can be developed. Any child who is properly trained can develop musical ability just as all children develop the ability to speak their mother tongue. The potential of every child is unlimited.
Due to the COVID-19 situation, the Hammond Suzuki Studio is currently teaching all lessons through online platforms. This situation is developing, and new policies and procedures will be developed with appropriate guidance from Ottawa Public Health.
Each student has a weekly private lesson, scheduled on week days throughout the program year. Lesson times are assigned, and remain stable for the entire program year.
Group classes are a weekly event that is scheduled on Saturday. Each student is placed in a group class that reflects their violin ability level.
Solo recitals are held in early December and early May.
A showcase recital featuring all group classes.
Community building events to kick off the studio year (September), and welcome everyone back in the new year (January).
Each year, special events will be included in the program to offer each student and their family a unique musical experience.
