WPMA welcomes our newest violin faculty, Virginia Billips, an early childhood education specialist! Emphasis on playing from a very young age, typically starting formal instruction from as young as 3 years old. Students old enough to study an instrument receive both an individual lesson and group class each week. This combination of private lessons and group classes lies at the heart of Dr. Suzuki’s philosophy and combined with the traditional teaching. Private lessons develop a student’s personal understanding. Group classes help students share their experiences with others in a fun and non-competitive environment. Parents are expected to attend group class with their children and while parental involvement is less focused, observers can offer the praise and support that makes any learning more productive.
