All students receive one individual lesson a week at my studio in Station Road, Cookham and a monthly group class. Group classes are usually held on a Saturday afternoon at Elizabeth House in Cookham and they give everyone the opportunity to make friends, have fun and gain confidence in performing. At the end of each term we hold an enjoyable informal concert for family and friends.

Upon completion of each Suzuki repertoire book (there are 11 in all) students are encouraged to organise thier own ‘book’ concert. In addition to book concerts students may also choose to work towards ABRSM grades 5 and 8.

Fees are currently £17.50 per half hour lesson which includes all group classes, concerts and membership to the British Suzuki Institute. As a member of the British Suzuki Institute your child will also have the opportunity to take part in workshops, summer schools and concerts at venues such as the Royal Festival Hall in London and Symphony Hall in Birmingham.

If you are considering Suzuki flute lessons for your child, here are some things for you to do:

Before your first lesson you will need to purchase:

  • Nurtured by Love, by Shinichi Suzuki, Suzuki’s short biography which provides an excellent description of the philosophy of the Suzuki method.
