Suzuki Music Instruction in Seattle

Child playing Suzuki cello

Music Lessons

At Suzuki Institute of Seattle, we offer private and group instruction for violin, viola, cello, and piano. Most children start between the ages of 4-7.

Why is Suzuki cool?

Parent involvement: a chance to bond with your child. Ear training: Kids learn by ear (Suzuki is known as the mother tongue method). Social: group classes provide a social environment to reinforce new skills and practice playing as an ensemble.

Giving to the Suzuki Institute of Seattle

Suzuki Institute of Seattle is ready for another great year of our talented teachers guiding and instructing our children through new songs, Suzuki books and recitals.  As you may or may not be aware, tuition for the upcoming school year does not cover the rising expenses of the school.  In an attempt to bridge that gap we are asking families who are able to help the school continue its great work of educating and enriching our children’s lives through music. As Board members, we are either teachers or parents of students, and we do not take this request lightly. Suzuki is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit, so your donations are tax deductible.



SIS Covid Policy

The Suzuki Institute is offering both in person and virtual lessons.  We will continue to stay within CDC guidelines and Seattle Public Schools. Please contact individual instructors for details.

Masks will be worn indoors at all times regardless of vaccination status.  You must stay home and have a virtual lesson if the student and/or their accompanying parent/guardian is contagious (even if it’s not Covid). If you are unsure you are contagious, contact your primary care doctor and please exercise caution if considering an in-person lesson. Our teachers reserve the right to send a student home or schedule a virtual lesson if they deem it appropriate for health reasons. Please read our full policy below, and sign/date the form before coming to an in person class. Thank you for helping to keep our families and faculty safe and healthy.
