Suzuki Violin Teacher – Ottawa Suzuki Strings

Ottawa, Canada

Ottawa Suzuki Strings (OSS) is a non-profit music school located in Canada’s National Capital City, founded in 2009. Inspired by the pedagogical philosophy of Shinichi Suzuki, a leading educator and humanitarian, OSS provides a learning environment for children that encourages and supports them in their pursuit of personal excellence. Dr. Suzuki’s approach was anchored in the conviction that “any child who is properly trained can develop musical ability, just as all children develop the ability to speak their mother tongue.” OSS is structured by Dr. Suzuki’s carefully developed approach and animated by his strong belief in what a love of music can accomplish when it is properly guided and supported. OSS is proud to be part of this focus on nurturing excellence in an age when music continues to play an important role in the goal of fostering an inclusive sense of community grounded in a respect for diversity. We seek to create opportunities for all children, including those who face specific challenges.
