Suzuki Program

With a philosophy dedicated to fostering a positive environment in which children learn music as naturally as their native language, the Suzuki method is widely accepted as one of the most effective forms of music instruction. VAM was one of the first North American institutions to incorporate Suzuki and has since been recognized as a global leader in the teaching method, offering individual and group opportunities with parent participation in the classroom and at home for an immersive learning experience.
