    Suzuki Summer JamboreeBased on the belief that children learn a musical instrument as naturally as they learn to speak, the Suzuki method is widely accepted as one of the most effective forms of music instruction. VAM was one of the first North American institutions to incorporate Suzuki and has since been recognized as a global leader in the teaching method. Parents are required to participate in the learning experience by attending lessons and group classes and reinforcing the learning points with daily home practice.
