Suzuki Strings Frequently Asked Questions

1) Who do I contact for more information about SSM?
Please contact us through e-mail on our contact page (preferred), or call Diana Popowycz at 608-695-4020.

2) What is the first step towards enrollment?
Prior to commencing instruction we require brief observation time of both private and group lessons to all those new to the Suzuki Method. This includes observing four private lessons, and four group lessons. After your observations are completed, we will schedule a time to meet with an instructor to determine an appropriate time to start lessons.

You may print your observation forms here.

3) How do I set up my private lesson observations?
In order to set up your private lesson observations you must call the faculty member you wish to observe to set up at time that works for both of you. Contact info for all faculty members is listed next to their profiles on the faculty page.

4) Where and when are Group Classes held?
SSM’s Group Classes occur every Tuesday at Covenant Presbyterian Church located at

326 S. Segoe Road, Madison, WI 53705.
