Our instructors are certified in a variety of pedagogical methods including Suzuki and Faber, and work with you to decide what is best for your child’s progress. Many families choose the Suzuki method, known for teaching very young children in the same manner they learned their first language. Adults and students 10 years and up often choose traditional methods that focus on note reading skills.
Because every student is unique, we do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching. Some students learn best by ear, while others prefer reading music. Some people have hours to practice every single day, while others can only spare a few minutes twice a week. Some students are very serious and hope to become professional musicians, while others just want to have fun or learn something new. At City Strings & Piano, our goal is to provide the best experience for your unique situation.

I started learning cello a few months ago. As an adult, I needed a teacher who could be flexible and patient with my learning style. I'm not a middle school kid learning music for band. CS&P gave me a great teacher who comes to my house each week and who is flexible enough to accommodate schedule changes due to my job. But more importantly, my progress has been above my own expectations. My teacher makes it fun to learn and practice daily injecting the right amount of music theory as we go along so I can play increasingly complex music. And since I enjoy learning technique and scales a lot, we focus more on that rather than learning simplified songs for my level. Ultimately this strategy will pay off and has already made me a better cellist student than I could have expected. I highly recommend the school in general and my teacher in particular.
City strings accommodated all my needs for home violin lessons.
The teacher is very professional and I am very happy with how everything is working out.
City Strings has been great. My daughter (who is in 8th grade) has been taking cello lessons with Courtney since November. Courtney teaches the Suzuki method where as my daughter has been learning essential elements in school since 4th grade. By practicing the Suzuki method, she feels like her technique has improved and it's been a satisfying challenge for her. The fact that we can have lessons at home with City Strings was the reason I went with them. We have a set time/evening for the lesson and the few times it doesn't work, Courtney has been flexible and we've moved the lesson to a time that works for all of us. I highly recommend City Strings- especially Courtney. She is professional, full of knowledge, and is just amazing.
