About CSP:  Now celebrating its 25th year, the Corryville Suzuki Project (CSP) is a nurturing, non-competitive string music education program where children receive a high level of musical training, rooted in Dr.Suzuki’s philosophy that every child can learn. The CSP program espouses this core value of the Suzuki  philosophy in a very literal way by inviting children of every economic, racial, and social background to communicate, develop high-level skills, and begin friendships through beautiful music.

Parent Involvement: The Parent-Teacher-Student triangle relationship is why Suzuki Talent Education is so successful. Parents of campers ages 4-6 are required to attend repertoire and technique classes with their children. Parent attendance at all other classes is encouraged but optional during the camp.
