About the Eastern North Carolina Suzuki Association
The Eastern North Carolina Suzuki Association is a non-profit organization in Eastern North Carolina for our Suzuki community among families, teachers and supporters of the arts. It exists for students and parents in Eastern NC who teach and learn music through the Suzuki methodology. It provides an important environment for the cooperative and nurturing interaction of those students with their parents and teachers.

This association offers support activities for students of all Suzuki teachers in the area. Seasonal and year-end programs give students a supportive atmosphere and environment to perfect their performance skills.
The Suzuki method, also called Talent Education, mother-tongue method, or Suzuki movement, is an educational philosophy that strives to create “high ability” and beautiful character in its students through a nurturing environment.
Suzuki methodology is modeled on a concept of early childhood education that focuses on factors that Shinichi Suzuki observed in native language acquisition: immersion, encouragement, small steps, and an unforced timetable for learning material based on developmental readiness to imitate examples, internalize principles, and contribute ideas.
