Spokane Youth Suzuki Academy is OPEN for Enrollment

The Spokane Youth Suzuki Academy class is intended as a beginning program for students in grades 3-5 who are curious and interested about learning violin, viola, or cello in a wonderful environment. String instruction is not an option in most school settings until 6th grade, but many students express interest much sooner and we are excited to provide a nurturing and affordable environment to make that a reality!
