ESTEAM - Randal's Suzuki Program
ESTEAM is Randal Harrison's Suzuki violin studio located on the near east side of Madison, WI. ESTEAM offers private violin lessons, group classes, recitals, and an annual workshop with many additional performance and social opportunities for students and their families.
At ESTEAM the skills and artistry taught while learning to play the violin are the vehicles used to encourage and foster that sense of joy in lifelong learning, a “can do” spirit of excellence and an empathy for others that makes the world a better place for all of us.
A key part of the Suzuki Method is to create a fun, supportive environment for your child to learn in.
About the Suzuki Method:
• A belief that Every Child Can Learn.
• Mother Tongue, a natural approach to learning the language of music.
• A fun, encouraging environment.
• Building block sequence to the repertoire sets up success.
• Private lessons teach both the student and their home teacher/parent.
• Group classes where students benefit from the motivation of their peers.
• Parental involvement is a crucial component to the Suzuki Method. Previous musical experience is not!
