Group Lessons and Book Recitals
Group lessons are held once a month, usually (but not always) the last week of the month. (Summers are less certain.) These lessons generally last as long or longer than a regular lesson, and no private lessons are held that week. These are a wonderful performance opportunity each month. For the sake of efficiency, I also teach things to the group that I would otherwise have to teach to each student individually.

Following the Suzuki method, as students complete levels, they are expected to perform all the pieces in that level in a solo recital. I hope everyone in the studio will attend other students’ book recitals! There are not too many of them, and a well-prepared recital is incredible motivation for both performer and audience.
