FAQs

What is the Suzuki Method?


To learn more, Click Here!




Is Morph Suzuki School, a Jazz School, or a Community School?


Well... yes! We are all three! Start by signing up for the Suzuki Core Program or Jazz Core Program as your base (private lessons, performances, etc.), then add as many Extracurriculars as you want!




Do I have to sign up for a Core Program to enroll at Morph?


Nope! If you already take private lessons, just head straight for the Extracurriculars! No need to sign up for our larger programs - though the perks are extensive ;) Please note - you do need to verify on our application that you are taking private lessons at or outside of Morph in order to enroll in our Extracurriculars.




What is the Free Full Package week for new students?


All new students are automatically enrolled for one free trial week, during which they can attend any classes they would like. Please note: some classes' free trial may be audit-only, depending on individual teachers and where they are in their course material with existing students.




Can I enroll mid-year?


Absolutely! There may be an adjustment period or extra homework for some extracurriculars, but Morph teachers are expert at meeting students where they are.




Are all courses available at all times?


Soon, the answer to this question will be "absolutely!" But for now, a given class can't be held unless it has 6 students enrolled - so please spread the word to your friends and help us build our quickly-expanding community!




How do I apply for Financial Aid?


Just click here! (Or you can also visit Signups and Financial Info for the same form)




How does Financial Aid work?


For now, Financial Aid is powered by donations. It may take Morph 6 months to a year to be able to provide significant funding - but if you submit a request, this helps us make our case to donors! So don't be shy - join the waiting list, spread the word, and let's make it happen! Rest assured Morph is committed to pursuing all available avenues to provide scholarship for ALL students who need it.




What Financial Aid programs are available?


Morph's goal is to have need-based partial financial aid available every year, as well as several full scholarships - including one yearly need-based full scholarship reserved for dismantling the finance barrier for Students of Color in Classical Music.




What primary instruments does Morph teach?


The primary instruments we offer are Suzuki Violin, Suzuki Viola, Jazz Bass, and Jazz Improvisation (any instrument, coached by our Bass faculty). (Suzuki Cello coming soon!) For all other instruments, see our selection of Extracurriculars!




Is Morph in-person or online?


Both! Morph has faculty spanning across the entire United States, so we always offer online programs and classes. However, we will also provide satellite locations in-person once it is safe to meet in person. Our first satellite location will be Orange County, California! Other possible future satellite locations include the New York 5 boroughs, Connecticut, Boston, and more! Bonus: the hybrid format of Morph is especially beneficial to in-person students, because if they get sick or need to travel, they are still welcome to attend class online!




I know nothing about music. Can I or my child still enroll?


Absolutely!! Morph is a wonderful place to start from scratch. Please contact morphsuzuki@gmail.com for specific questions, or simply fill out an application form to get started and we will reach out to you for details! If you have ae very young child, don't be nervous - you have found the Suzuki Method, the very best way to get started in music! Welcome to your new community!




Where should I begin if I am new to music?


If you are interested in Violin or Viola, select "Suzuki Core" (read more) on our signup form! If you are interested in Double Bass, select "Jazz Core" ( read more) on our signup form! If you are interested in just one of our Extracurriculars, Morph only offers them to students who are already taking music lessons (either at Morph or elsewhere). This is because all our Extracurriculars require a basic knowledge of music!




I only want private lessons, nothing else. What do I select?


Morph's philosophy matches that of Dr. Suzuki: Music is not meant to be played in a vacuum - it is meant to be shared! There are plenty of schools and music studios that offer private lessons alone, and while they may be a good place to start financially, they often to lead to a dead-end road of unmotivated, lonely music-making (end result: quitting!). Morph wants to ensure that each of our students has an enriching, full musical life that will propel them into the future with creativity, joy, and purpose. If you are firm in your choice to only take private lessons, all of our faculty are available for simple private lessons outside of Morph. Please contact them individually here.
