We invite you to join our Northern California, San Francisco Bay Area community of teachers and families.  

Our Mission:  We encourage and support excellence in music education by creating a community of students, parents and teachers that upholds the ideas, principles, and philosophy of Dr. Shinichi Suzuki.
