Classes are currently offered to students in Boyne City, Charlevoix, East Jordan, Ellsworth, Petoskey and Beaver Island and we look forward to program expansion in the near future. In school classes are recommended for 3rd grade and up, while younger students are encouraged to get involved in our newly established the Suzuki Program.
