Fort Worth Youth Orchestra SUZUKI PROGRAM


The FWYO offers Suzuki instruction in violin, viola, cello and piano. As in traditional methods of instruction, students take weekly private lessons. In addition, Suzuki students attend group classes (weekly for string students and bi-monthly for piano students). Students perform in recitals, group concerts, and community performances.


The Fort Worth Youth Orchestra Suzuki program requires the active participation of a parent or guardian. This includes attendance at all lessons and group classes, and a willingness to serve as the child’s at-home practice partner. Being a part of the FWYO Suzuki program is a long-term commitment. We plan to be here for your child’s “senior recital.”


The Early Childhood Music (ECM) classes are a point of entry to the Fort Worth Youth Orchestra Suzuki Program. Parents or caregivers join their children in musical explorations. The instructors work in partnership with parents or caregivers to create a welcoming and stimulating learning environment, foster participation, and help children realize their potential.


FWYO is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is investing in the future of music and the next generation of leaders.
