This is an early childhood music class unlike anything you've ever experienced. Engaging for both child and parent, this program focuses on musical participation, instilling early habits of rhythm, tempo, and pace. Mixed age group classes teach children how to learn and be leaders in a calm, respectful environment. Classes are kept small so that students all take part, get to know each other, and have fun while doing it.
Tuition assistance programs are available for each semester.
Researchers have found that repeated participation in music, and interaction in a musical environment, impacts the brain in ways that no other activity does. Check out our SECE Research to read case studies and further research.

The Alyla Suzuki Early Childhood Music School of Greater New Haven County holds classes in Woodbridge, CT.
In recent years there have been many studies presenting increasingly compelling evidence that an environment rich in stimulation-and in particular, one that is rich in music actually creates connections in the brains of babies and very young children. These connections significantly improve their ability to function in a variety of learning areas later in life.
Although our class is set up for the newborn, and infant stages through age three- it is also an early intervention program for children with speech delays, special needs children and those found to be on the autism spectrum. Because of the emphasis on language acquisition, parents of adopted children find this class to be a wonderful tool for children from other countries who need to acclimate to a new language. A wonderful class for Home School families and a perfect partner class for the Montessori student.
The Alyla Suzuki Music Center was founded upon the Suzuki approach to Early Childhood learning. Although the “Suzuki Early Childhood Education” program has been adopted throughout the world, this pioneering program is relatively new within the United States. This program is substantial in that it addresses the most current research in Early Childhood Education. The Alyla Suzuki Music Center offers group classes as well as individual piano and violin classes.
Only a handful of teachers have this specialized training. For the first time, The Suzuki Early Childhood Program has been included in the University of Hartford’s Summer Institute for Teacher Training. The demonstration classes were taught by Lynn McCall and Laura Speno. The uniqueness of Suzuki Early Childhood Education is the emphasis on the natural development of the child from birth and the rich and stimulating learning partnerships that are developed with parents and teachers. This program teaches the child focus, concentration skills, and creates and strengthens brain development from birth.
The Alyla Suzuki Music Center for Early Childhood Education is located in Woodbridge Connecticut (see Map). The school was founded in 2006 and currently is
taking students for the up coming semester.
