Helping Suzuki Parents
The Suzuki Parents’ Guide to Helping Their Children Reach Their Potential
Parent Classes are offered to all parents and required to those parents who are wanting to enroll their children in Suzuki Lessons with Fox Park Music Studio. Parents attend weekly classes which prepare them to take on the role of home teacher, give practical solutions to many common issues that parents face, as well as give an opportunity for parents to become part of a support system with other parents attending. Classes also include basic music theory as well as learning how to play violin or piano through the Twinkles.
New Parent Class forming Tuesdays at 1:30 pm & 8:30 pm.

Private Parent Coaching
Do you struggle either getting your child to practice or practicing with your child? Ever wish you had a parent’s manual or understand music better yourself? Want to discuss home practice issues in a confidential setting away from the child?
Special One-on-One Coachings and Training Sessions can be arranged to fit in your schedule.
Please call or e-mail for further information or to schedule a coaching!
Practice Observation & Feedback
Being the home teacher is by far the hardest job! I can easily say that as I have been on all three sides of the equation: child, teacher and parent! Even when you think you understand the assignment from the teacher, things can go very terribly wrong at home, or at least not as well as you would like in order to get the greatest benefit from lessons. Sometimes, all it takes to go from a not-so-good practice to life-altering bonding moments with your child is to be able to isolate tiny issues: wording, gestures, expressions or environment, to name a few. The Practice Coach Observation is simple: either come with your child to the Studio or videotape your practice with your child in their home environment, observations will be made (without interrupting the flow of the parent teaching the child) and a list of suggestions given.
*Please note, as this is available to anyone regardless of who their regular teacher, studio or school is, the only suggestions given are those that pertain directly to practicing with the child! Observations are not meant to substitute for lessons with the child’s regular teacher.
