Here are some things that parents and students have said about the Ottawa Suzuki Guitar Program of SuzukiMusic:
"One of the things I like best about SuzukiMusic is how my child has absolutely no fear of performing in front of large groups, guitar or otherwise. He has been known to take his guitar out at parties and play for everybody, something which I or his father would never have done."
- Cindy Deck
“Our two sons have been in the Suzuki Guitar Program since its inception. The teachers, Chela and Daniel, are superb with children and provide them with plenty of exciting challenges as they develop into teenagers. My sons enjoy the camaraderie and stimulation of the junior and senior guitar performance ensembles. We love to hear the classical, jazz, Latin and popular guitar music that they play.”
- Oonagh and Karl
"Our son joined the Suzuki Guitar Program 3 years ago. He really enjoys learning all the different songs.
The program is well structured from the private lessons with his teacher to the group lessons with his fellow guitar players.
Learning a musical instrument has given him confidence and a great memory which in return has helped him in his school work.
Our son has had the opportunity to perform in front of family, friends and his school.
Everyone is amazed at his skill level at such a young age. Thank you."
- Chantal Plant
"The Suzuki Guitar Program is the perfect fit for my 5 year old son. It encompasses a balance of one-on-one lessons and group lessons; children get individual attention and they get to be part of a musical community as well. The children have a rich amount of opportunities to be exposed to performing in public. Not to mention the theacher's amazing knowledge not only as a musician but also in working with young children...
My son is delighted with his guitar lessons, he is looking forward to every opportunity to meet his teacher, perform or learn a new song. He learns so fast when he is having fun! We also get to enjoy and experience music together as a family."
"These are some of the things I like about SuzukiMusic:
- I enjoy watching the kids improve their music abilities
- The smiles and admiration of the instructors
- The involvement of the families in the classes
- You feel as a parent you are part of the learning process
- Dean Roddick
