New Students

Practice only on the days you eat! - Dr. Shinichi Suzuki


Thank you for your interest in the Ottawa Suzuki Strings!  We start new students in September and January each year.  

Instrument instruction can begin as early as age 2.


2018 Fall Parent Seminars:    September 22nd, September 29th, October 6th, and October 13th.

Parents of new beginners meet with Ottawa Suzuki Strings Teachers for a series of parent seminars.  Parents meet weekly for 4 weeks 10:00 - Noon.  Both parents are welcome; the parent who will be the primary 'home teacher' (the parent who comes to all lessons and engineers the home practice) should plan to come every week.  The seminar meets in the Carnegie Cultural Center, 2nd floor, at 501 S. Main Street, in Ottawa, KS.  

New students participate in a Beginners’ Readiness Group Class once a week in addition to their individual lesson.

The Beginner's Readiness Group Class meets every Monday evening at 6:00 p.m. starting on September 24th.

Private lessons will be scheduled to begin during the week of October 15th at the mutual convenience of the family and the teacher. The 6:00 p.m. Monday class period will continue throughout the year, as well.

Begin early, go slowly and never stop. -Dr. Shinichi Suzuki
