Admission Procedures for Transfer Students
The School for Strings accepts transfer students into its Suzuki Program and Advanced Program. Students are considered for transfer if they have already begun instrumental study.
Parents of transfer students are required to attend an Orientation Meeting. At this meeting, parents listen to a presentation by the School’s directors, purchase materials to read, and sign up for a family interview. In the presentation portion of the meeting, the directors discusses the Suzuki philosophy, psychology, and educational approach, and describe the importance of the role parents play in the child’s progress, development and success.
Transfer students will be asked to attend a combination interview/audition where they should come prepared to play a polished piece representing their ability on the instrument. The audition helps the School place transfer students in appropriate level classes.
