Suzuki Music

Etobicoke Suzuki Music is recognized as one of the first and finest Suzuki programs in Canada. At Etobicoke Suzuki Music, we want to bring the joy of learning music into the home of every family that we serve.

The Suzuki Method

Children all over the world learn to speak their native language or mother tongue with ease, no matter how complex that language might be.

Dr. Shinichi Suzuki (1898-1998) believed that the steps involved in language acquisition can be applied to music learning, and that every child is capable of developing musical abilities. The ideas of parent responsibility, loving encouragement, constant repetition, etc., are some of the special features of the Suzuki approach.

The objective of ESM is to contribute to the community, in partnership with our families, through high-quality music education. In addition to fostering an ongoing appreciation of music, this education seeks to nurture the whole child by developing independence, discipline, and other life skills.
