The Aber Suzuki Center offers lessons and group classes for children and adults in the areas of Suzuki Early Childhood Education, violin, viola, cello, bass, voice, piano, guitar, harp, chamber music, and orchestra. The Aber Suzuki Center is the oldest Suzuki program in the state, and one of the few in the nation affiliated with a university. It is one of only 24 programs across the country that offers long-term, degree-granting training for teachers.

Every Child Has Talent

The Suzuki method is based on the premise that all children are born with talent. This talent
can be developed in the same way they learn to speak their native language: at home, in a
nurturing family-centered environment. With the guidance of excellent teachers and the support of parents, Suzuki students learn to make music in the same way they learn to speak— by listening and imitating.

Suzuki Early Childhood Education

  • Specifically designed for children newborn to age 4.
  • When a child graduates from the SECE class, both the parent and child have the foundation to start individual Suzuki music instruction on any instrument.

ASI Tree of Life

ASI Tree of Life

The “ASI Tree of Life” is a creation that was commissioned to celebrate 50 years of growth of the American Suzuki Institute. In 1971, Margery Aber, inspired by Shinichi Suzuki, planted the seed for the Institute. In this online version, the names off all of the faculty who have taught at ASI in these first 50 years are listed below the interactive tree. The leaves represent present-day families, alumni and friends whose lives have been touched by ASI and who support the ongoing process of Celebrating the Past – Shaping the Future.
