Performances

Performance is an important element of any musical education. Sharing with an audience helps cultivate self-assurance, grit, and focus in each student. Throughout the year, LSS hosts performing opportunities in the form of studio solo recitals, group class concerts, outreach performances in the community, and solo book graduation recitals.

Daily Practice and Listening

Home practice and daily listening are integral to your child's musical development; this is how they improve, building their discipline and confidence!  Home practice begins at 15 to 30 minutes per day and should be treated as part of your child’s routine so it becomes a habit.

Besides practicing, students also listen to their music to develop a sense of tone and artistry. Suzuki recordings are available for purchase on platforms such as Amazon Music, Apple Music, or as a CD.

    Suzuki programs are more comprehensive and involved than traditional music lessons. Suzuki involves weekly one-on-one instruction, parent participation in private lessons, group classes with other students, and parent involvement in daily home practice.
  • Does my child need previous musical experience?
    Not at all! No musical experience is necessary to begin in the LSS program. All you need is excitement and willingness to learn!
  • Where are you located?
    Lakewood Suzuki Strings is located in Lakewood, Ohio. We are conveniently on the west side of Cleveland, Ohio where your child can receive viola or violin lessons outside Cleveland.
