2021/2022 Suzuki Music Columbus Calendars
Suzuki Music Columbus offers a comprehensive program consisting of regular private lessons and a group class experience that builds on work done in the private lessons, provides performing experiences, and a fosters a supportive peer group of musician friends.
All students, families, & faculty must wear a mask fully covering their nose and mouth for all indoor Suzuki Music Columbus lessons, classes, and events. Solo recitals will be limited attendance of the performing students, their families, and a few faculty members. Anyone with symptoms of Covid (fever, cough, sore throat, etc…) should not attend until they can be tested. Group Classes and Recitals will be in-person with masks and social distance protocols. We plan to offer a special distance-learning group class on Zoom to serve our students at higher risk unable to attend in-person.
Private Lesson Schedule:
Private lessons are once a week as scheduled with your teacher. Lesson times are typically scheduled on a Monday through Thursday in the "after school" hours, with some morning lessons offered to preschool and homeschool students. The calendar for private lessons is typically 42 weeks of the year with 10 weeks off for holidays and breaks. Please check with your individual teacher for his or her lesson schedule.
