About the Curriculum
Suzuki Early Childhood Education (SECE) is based on the music education philosophy developed in Japan in the 1950s by the renowned violin teacher, Shinichi Suzuki. Canadian pedagogues, Dorothy and Sharon Jones, were asked by Suzuki to create this unique and advanced curriculum to lay a foundation for all learning as well as prepare students for instrumental study.
