The School for Strings

Since 1970, The School for Strings has been New York’s premiere Suzuki-based music school, providing outstanding instrumental instruction to thousands of children. In line with Dr. Shinichi Suzuki’s philosophy, we believe that all children can achieve beyond their expectations through the study of music. Our approach focuses on fostering a love of music, self-confidence, discipline, good work habits, and outstanding achievement in every student. Our comprehensive Instrumental programs in violin, cello and piano for beginner students ages 3-5 and older transfer students include private lessons, group playing classes, music theory, and ensemble opportunities. Parents of beginner students attend a special Parent Class. Our Early Childhood Music Program introduces children ages 1-4 to the fundamentals of classical music: rhythm, melody, harmony, tempo, dynamics and articulation. Children explore instruments, play rhythmic games and learn to move to music to prepare them for future instrumental study.

Join us for an Open House on Tuesday, June 18 at 6:30 pm at The School for Strings (419 W 54th Street, New York, NY 10019). Our Executive Director, Alexander Yudkovsky, will present the curriculum and answer questions. Attendance is mandatory for prospective families. RSVP at
