For newborns and young children up to approximately 36 months, there is a weekly Suzuki Early Childhood Education Class. Scientific research confirms that music in the first three years of life stimulates physical, social, and intellectual growth. This carefully designed program uses music, movement, activities and children's books to encourage early growth in language and reading readiness. This program also helps children develop rhythmic, melodic awareness, memory and social skills. Here is a video that talks about how this class develops character in children first and then ability.
