Each fall we begin a new class of violin, viola, and cello students from children in Preschool through 3rd grade at Southfield School. The process begins in February each year from applications filled out and received from our website, www.centenarysuzuki.com. We process your application form and ask you to attend a few parent meetings in the spring. Acceptance into CSS is based on the student’s age and readiness, and how many openings are available. Also, we have you observe private lessons in the summer and complete some required reading. Private and group lessons begin in the fall. Private lessons are 30 minutes a week during school hours, based on a time conducive to the practice parent, private teacher, and classroom teacher. Group lessons are on Tuesday afternoons from 3:30-5:30 pm at the Hurley Music Building on Centenary College campus.
