Miss Morgan’s Pre/K Group Class is structured in an innovative way which is considered more effective than private lessons for the first year of study. In class all students and parents work together as a team–supporting and learning from each other. It is a perfect way to explore if music lessons are right for you and your child.
There is no doubt that music lessons teach children more useful life skills than any other activity. Through violin lessons teach skills such as problem solving, patience, cooperation, bravery, and, of course, an appreciation for art and beauty. Miss Morgan uses principles from her background in Neuroscience, the Suzuki method, as well as her own experience as a professional musician, to develop an engaging, sequential approach for learning violin skills. Morgan believes that all of her students will not only grow into talented musicians but will be the bright, thoughtful leaders of our next generation.
What is Suzuki method?
Suzuki method is a philosophy on how to teach violin. It is ideally started between the ages of 4 to 7. Classes focus on building violin skills first with the guidance of the parent. While muscle memory is developing, students listen to their future repertoire. Note reading is introduced alongside actual reading. Review is also important, so students in the Suzuki program meet for group class to perform together.

Violin & Viola Lessons
Morgan’s approach combines her skills as a string player with her background in Neuroscience, providing a deep understanding of how we learn the violin both physically and musically. For her older, perhaps experienced students, Morgan may use a more traditional approach to teaching infused with strong foundation in technique. In addition to classical repertoire, toward the end of the school year Morgan encourages her students to learn American and international folk music inspired for the fiddle.
