Ekota Music Studio offers both in-person and remote learning sessions depending on circumstances and personal preference.
Remote lessons are conducted via the Zoom platform with highest quality internet data connection, hi-resolution cameras and studio quality microphones. Your experience will also depend on your internet connection and quality of devices.
For in-person classes, hand-sanitizing before and after classes, masking and physical distancing guidelines will be part of our heath procedures to help limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
A health guideline agreement will also be required prior to in-person attendance.
"Beautiful tone = Beautiful heart"
This is a quote from Shinchi Suzuki who believed everyone was inherently musical and could further develop their music skills and abilities provided they were in the right environment. Suzuki style music learning is also known as the Mother tongue approach where a child learns to speak, read and write in their own language.
The style EKOTA Suzuki uses encompasses this idea with an engaging grassroots approach which appeals to students of all ages and abilities. For kids in Early childhood to Book Four, the mom or dad "parent coach/cheerleader" will be trained to work alongside the student until independence is attained. Parents who have children interested in piano can find information about Suzuki style learning by following the link below.
