Carroll Suzuki Violinists and Violists is a very special program at Carroll Elementary. It has been in existence for eight years and has students from first through fifth grades. Students begin studying the violin or the viola at Cravens ECA at Kindergarten Level with full Parental Involvement and continue when they matriculate to Carroll. The Suzuki Method was begun by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki from Japan, based on the philosophy that Every Child Can Learn and that every child has musical ability.
The Carroll Students have
performed in many concerts, workshops, festivals, perform in the Houston Youth
Symphony, Chamber Music
Seminars and many students attend the American Festival of the Arts Summer Music Festival in June.
Last year over $20,000 of scholarship money was awarded to our students for their great musical achievements. Their instructor is Judy Offman.
