The mission of the Suzuki Academy of Columbia is to enrich the lives of children through studying a musical instrument from an early age.  Our philosophy is based on the teachings of Dr. Shinichi Suzuki, who believed that every child has the ability to learn music based on the principles of language acquisition.  We strive to create a positive and nurturing environment, where parents and teachers work together to foster the child’s success.
