Review for Corryville Suzuki Project Inc, Cincinnati, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Corryville Suzuki Project is a fantastic string program (violins, violas, cellos, bases) located in Cincinnati. My two sons have been students for several years. The program is run by a husband-wife team of string players, Dr. Vincent Phelan and his wife, Elizabeth Council-Phelan. Vince was awarded his doctorate in music from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. He is the concertmaster of the Middleton Symphony Orchestra. I believe his wife either attended or was graduated from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. (I'm just not as sure of her background as Vince was awarded his doctorate as my sons were in the program, so I happened to hear about his educational background.) Elizabeth also plays for the Middleton Symphony Orchestra, as the first-chair violist. The particular beauty of this program is how well-rounded it is. In addition to expert individual instruction, Saturday-morning group classes are held ever other week or so. Group playing and music theory are taught. As a family, we have in recent years moved in corporate relocations, to Minnesota and to Fayetteville, Arkansas. Minnesota is home to the world-renowned McPhail Center in Minneapolis. We joined that program, and it is a good one. Believe it or not, though, the Corryville Suzuki Project is in my opinion a superior program, particularly because of the well-designed Saturday group class.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the improvement my children have experienced in playing the violin and learning about music.
