Group classes can give the best motivation to our students to keep their interest in music.  It is essential for the students to learn how to play with others. Not only does it give them confidence, it also teaches them how to rehearse with others and play in a group setting. At QMA, we offer performance opportunities for the local community.

ALL CLASSES NEED AT LEAST 4 ENROLLED STUDENTS TO LAUNCH.

SUZUKI & SHIRLEY GIVEN METHOD 


Our schools teaching philosophy is primarily influenced by Dr. Suzuki Shinichi's mother tongue method, Shirley Given's Adventure in Violinland and "Music For Little Mozart" series for young pianists. We engage young children through the usage of visuals such as illustrated characters and stuffed animals to help make stories for each song. This helps to keep make their young minds more imaginative and exciting for each day's lesson. We believe that if we make the size of a violin smaller, they are able to start playing as young as 3 years old.
