Music - Instruments/Instruction/Performance/School
Founded in 1997, the Suzuki Music School of Westport has grown from humble beginnings in a church hall to one of the country's largest independent non-profit community music schools dedicated to the teaching of the Suzuki method.
It now includes school locations in Westport, Orange and Stamford reaching a student body that extends over a 200 miles radius. Among our educational partners, the Suzuki Schools are proud to support KEYS, Kids Empowered by Your Support - a fellow non-profit serving over 600 school children in Bridgeport. At the heart of the school's calendar lie programs such the Da Capo Visiting Artist Series - bringing major international artists and teachers to work and perform for our students and the local community - the Pillow Concert Series - offering free child friendly concerts in intimate surroundings.
Our community programs support a variety of student programs that complement the core Suzuki curriculum. Student recitals and concerts take place throughout the year. The school has a fun social calendar in which music is part of every day life. We march in the Memorial Day Parade, we perform at Earthplace, Santa's House, the Bluefish Baseball Stadium and in seasonal events such as our ''spooky Suzuki concert'', a Halloween costume event. We even perform at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center! We thank our parents every day for making music part of their child's life and for supporting us as a school!
