York Suzuki Early Childhood Education offers weekly music classes for children aged 0-3, with their caregiver. They are a chance to come together to celebrate the unlimited potential of every child. Our classes offer a calm, structured, nurturing space to engage with your little one through music.
The classes are run by trained SECE teacher, Laura Wingrove, who has over 10 years’ experience of teaching through the Suzuki method. Class sizes are small to allow each and every child to flourish and caregivers are supported at every stage of the journey. We use the beautiful SECE curriculum of nursery rhymes and action songs which is based on the teaching philosophy of renowned pedagogue Shinichi Suzuki. Although many musical concepts are mastered within the classes, it was not Suzuki’s primary aim to create master musicians, but rather ‘human beings with beautiful, harmonious minds and high sensitivity’. We believe that by using the highest quality musical instruments, children are given the earliest opportunity to appreciate beauty, to treat the instruments with respect, and to play them properly, creating a beautiful sound themselves.
