Suzuki Music School in Reston, Virginia

Violin Lessons

Violin lessons using the Suzuki Method for students of all ages.

Baby & Toddler Music

Eric Davenport offers the only Suzuki Early Childhood Education Baby & Toddler music class in Northern Virginia.

The Davenport Suzuki Violin School in Reston currently serves students in Fairfax, Reston, Chantilly, Herndon, Vienna, Sterling, Oakton, and Ashburn.

I use the Suzuki Method at weekly private and group lessons.  Each lesson is planned for what a particular student needs.  When violin lessons are individualized, you can have fun and learn at the same time.

The weekly Suzuki Baby & Toddler music class is for ages 0 – 3 until their 4th birthday. Each child brings their own adult to share the fun of action songs & rhymes, movements, & playing musical instruments. Lots of hugs!

The Suzuki Method is a unique way to teach the violin to any beginner. Some key features—begin by listening to recordings of the pieces—reviewing often—learning with others in group classes in addition to private lessons.

Want to see me teach?  My YouTube channels (Eric Davenport & Davenport Suzuki Violin School) have many violin lessons recorded that will give you an idea of the Suzuki Method and how I work with students of all ages.

“Violin lessons have been a wonderful experience for myself as well learning music basics and meeting great families of other pupils. I truly feel my son and I are part of a Suzuki community.”
