Music at Heart - Suzuki Recorder in York

  • The power of music to develop a human heart is great

    Shinichi Suzuki
  • Suzuki’s goal was not to turn children into professional musicians, but to unlock their full human potential…

  • Language education is not delayed until school age, or until the child shows interest. Why wait when it comes to music? Don’t waste those vital early years… introduce your child to music now.



Thank you for being such a great recorder teacher...for all the time and effort you have invested in me over the years...most of all, thank you for teaching me a skill that I will use, and enjoy, for the rest of my life.

Dear Heather,

I just wanted to share this photo with you.

As there was no music class yesterday (it was Half Term), I took Violetta to the Art and Music exhibition at the City Art gallery. She had the xylophone all to herself and played it in perfect rhythm for half an hour! People were stopping and commenting on the baby with such focus and enjoyment of making music. I actually had to drag her away when it was time to leave.

I'm so excited about her delight in music - and I'm sure it's because of her experiences in your class. We practise beating rhythms on the table with spoons every day whilst singing songs from the classes and she adores it.

Thank you for the pleasure that you have already given to her - and to me. It's a wonderful gift with which to begin and I hope that I can nurture it for as long as possible.

– Sophie (and Violetta)
