Lessons are offered at many times during the week with most of them occurring in the weekday afternoons, weekday evenings and weekends. Students typically enroll in lessons that meet once a week for a half-hour for the full semester. The Community Arts School offers a rolling admission where students may enroll at any time during the semester.

Suzuki Violin

The Baldwin Wallace Suzuki Center offers private lessons and group classes using the Suzuki method for ages 4 & up. With careful guidance from specially trained teachers, parents help their children learn to play violin through the same natural process that occurs when their children learn to speak. The establishment of this "Suzuki triangle" provides the stimulation and encouragement that children need to acquire other critical learning skills.
