Forest City Talent Education

Delight must be the basis and aim of this art.

The Program

The prime purpose is to encourage enjoyment from playing musical instruments and to foster an interest in and an appreciation of good music by endeavoring to create an environment in which quality instruction can thrive for children on a regular basis.


Children are brought together weekly during the academic year to work together in group classes and performing ensembles under competent instructors and other supportive individuals. Performing opportunities are created through concerts, recitals, and community events for the benefit of children registered in the program. Children are instructed in violin, cello or guitar. Group instruction includes classes from Pre-Twinkle study through to Suzuki Book 8 and beyond. The school includes Violin ensembles, Senior, Intermediate and Junior orchestras and chamber music ensembles as part of the morning program.

This program for children functions on Saturday mornings as a supplement to their other musical studies. It is paid for through a combination of fees, donations and fundraising.

The Basic Fee is always based on the student at the highest playing level of violin or cello. Book 2 and below fees do not include orchestra.
