Suzuki Strings:  This method specializes in teaching very young children to play an instrument, beginning as early as three years old.  Students begin in a private lesson context with the active involvement of a parent, then also have opportunities to learn in groups as they develop.  

Private lessons:  Traditional lessons in violin, viola, cello or bass are offered with the excellent instructors of the Gerber Strings Program at Christ Episcopal Church and the Gerber Strings Office in Petoskey. Students may sign up for 30, 45 or 60 minute lessons, as is appropriate for their age and skill level and are scheduled on a first come, first served basis.  Lessons begin on September 4.
