Davenport Suzuki Violin and Suzuki Early Childhood Education Program in Northern Virginia, is located in Reston, Virginia, near the North Point Village Center. It is within easy access from the surrounding areas of Ashburn, Fairfax, Great Falls, Herndon, Sterling, and Vienna.

Eric Davenport teaches violin lessons using the Suzuki Method for students of all ages. He also teaches the first certified Suzuki Early Childhood Education Class in the greater Reston area.

There is no better way to start violin lessons than with the Suzuki Method because it is a method for any child, not just the talented. Further, the Suzuki Early Childhood Education class is a preparation for all future learning including violin lessons.

The  Suzuki Method is suitable for very young children. The young child has a special readiness for acquiring skills necessary to play the violin.  Children younger than 3 may enroll in the Early Childhood Education class where they will learn the focus, attention, rhythm, memory, and melodic awareness necessary for private lessons (which could take place simultaneously depending on the child.)

Children and adults can learn to play the violin using the Suzuki Method. Eric’s studio is dedicated to creating fine violinists of all ages, 2 1/2 to adult.  Our studio’s goal is not to create mediocre players.  You or your child will have instruction that will develop skills for excellence.

Shinichi Suzuki says, “I have pledged that from today on I will not be satisfied until I make every one of my students a fine violinist.”

What is the Suzuki environment?

What did Dr. Suzuki mean by environment? When Dr. Suzuki first began to develop a system for teaching children to play the violin, he came to the conclusion that every child had the ability to play the violin.  That was really a shock to most people who had felt only certain children were born with […]
