The Aber Suzuki Center is the only 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. It is also one of the most extensive programs in the country for students, offering classes in Suzuki Early Childhood Education, violin, viola, cello, bass, voice, piano, guitar, flute, harp, chamber music, music theory, and orchestra.
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.

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.
