Suzuki® at Madison Street - Summer 2022

More than fifty years ago, Japanese musician Shinichi Suzuki realized the implications of the fact that children the world over learn to speak their native language with ease. He began to apply the basic principles of language acquisition to the learning of music, and called his method the "mother-tongue" approach. The ideas of parent responsibility, loving encouragement, constant repetition, etc. are some of the special features of the Suzuki® approach.

The Academy’s unique role as a Parish-based Community School attracted national attention when Yale University invited Academy Director, Rev. Jared Wilson, to present on the work and mission of the Academy through Yale University’s Institute for Sacred Music.

 

As one of only three programs in the country chosen to present at Yale, Rev. Wilson has since partnered with the university in offering workshops on Parish-based Music Schools throughout the United States.
