Santa Fe Talent Education is an amazing organization dedicated to music education for children. My child has been learning violin since age three (yes they start that young!) and the patience and kindness with which SFTE teachers guide young children (and older ones too) into a pure love of music is truly amazing.

Suzuki Music Education is a process - with each song there is something new to learn and children are taught all the nuances of beautiful violin posture, how to hold the violin and the bow, and how to make beautiful sounds. It is taught with a strong emphasis - and some training - on parental involvement. As a parent, I practice everyday with my child, while the teacher meets with him once a week to help him learn new aspects of playing the violin.

There is also a focus on performing. The kids at SFTE regularly play together at play-ins or recitals.

I love SFTE. What they have given my son and me, is a gift that will last forever in our life.
