Enrollment Information

All of our instructors use the teaching methods of the renowned Japanese pedagog, Shinichi Suzuki.  Some of those features include parent involvement at the lessons and home practice, a loving environment, and constant repetition.  We encourage you to learn more about the Suzuki Method on our Resource page.


We would also like to get to know you (and for you to know us!) before committing to lessons.   If you are interested in enrolling in our program, here is our three step process:


1.  Observe a group class. Group classes are held during the academic year on Tuesdays from 5:00-5:45. Please please email Andra Prewett at franklinsuzukiacademy@gmail.com if you would like to schedule a visit. You may also call 615-567-3723 during office hours.


2. Schedule an interview.  After you have watched a group class, we will set you up with one of our instructors.  They will be able to answer any questions you may have, including the most often asked question, “Is my child ready for lessons?”


3. Schedule your lesson time with your instructor!


Each student will receive two weekly lessons: One group class and one private lesson.  We currently offer classes for Violin, Viola, Guitar, and Early Childhood Music.  Our calendar is divided into two 17-week semesters:  Fall & Spring; and one Summer term.  You may enroll at any time during the year.
