“Music exists for the purpose of growing an admirable heart” Shinichi Suzuki 

What OPSA parents are saying,...

“I feel so fortunate to be in a Suzuki program that includes students winning spots in CYSO’s top ensembles, gaining acceptance into competitive summer music programs and colleges, and yet, we do not feel competition or comparison with our fellow OPSA families. The teachers here encourage excellence without pitting students against one another. It is such a positive and individualized environment.”

What OPSA parents are saying...

“We are so fortunate to have been with Ms. Meg for years and years now. As a young parent looking for music lessons for your child, it is hard to tell what to look for in a teacher or school. We were so lucky to have found OPSA. We attended summer Suzuki camps in other states and would receive gushing compliments on how our daughters were “set up” and how their tone was so beautiful. We quickly saw that not all Suzuki teachers have the same skill that Ms. Meg has at OPSA.”

What OPSA parents are saying...

“I was so scared to jump into this Suzuki violin adventure with my son. I had a less than positive experience with music lessons as a child. OPSA is wonderful–nurturing, yet has high standards. It is hard work and we both learn a lot about each other along the way. Has been very rewarding overall.”
