Music

The Katonah Art Center's Suzuki Guitar Program is a curriculum designed for teaching guitar to children starting from age 3. Skills developed in the program include ear training, theory, sight-reading and instrumental technique. Unlike traditional music lessons, where the parents have little or no involvement with their child's lessons, children in the Suzuki guitar program learn the instrument with the help of a dedicated home teacher: the mother, father or guardian, who always practice with the child and attend all lessons and classes. In addition, the home teacher is trained prior to the start of the child's lessons, and continues to study the instrument in parallel to the child.
