Suzuki Early Childhood Education (SECE) is a parent/child music and movement class for children newborn - age 4. Our goal is to create a loving, pressure-free environment that allows parents to guide their children in the development of social, emotional, cognitive, and musical skills. Through repetition in class and at home, children gain confidence, as well as skill, through the activities and songs sung in class. Upon graduating from the class, children are ready to begin Suzuki instrumental study.


We are thrilled to be offering Suzuki Early Childhood Education at KCSA! Our two wonderful faculty members, Mary Shemon and Lani Hamilton, have received specialized training to teach this course, and our students love it! 


Suzuki Early Childhood Education Class (ages 0-4):

• The Suzuki Early Childhood Education class is a weekly class for children and parents from birth to age four. Developed from the concepts of the world renowned Suzuki Method, this class has a nurturing and encouraging environment where children learn from one another and work on building listening, pitch recognition, fine motor skills, and social skills. Each week children will have the opportunity to experience different instruments through listening and playing. "When the environment is rich and unpressured a child not only learns a skill, but also gains a sense of purpose in life, an understanding of discipline, and an appreciation of beauty." --Dr. Suzuki

• Class meets weekly on Mondays from 11:00-11:45 am and runs for 30 weeks from September 10th-May 20th. 

• Tuition is $500 per child. This fee includes the accompanying SECE CD recording.
