Offering instruction by qualified teachers in Violin, Viola, Cello, Guitar, Harp, Piano, Flute, Voice and Early Childhood Education
The Hamilton Suzuki School of Music, formerly the Hamilton Philharmonic Children Inc., began in 1967 as a centennial project of the Women’s Committee of the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra. It became known as the HSSM in 1979/1980. The goal of the Hamilton Suzuki School of Music is to promote the musical education of children and to nurture their musical growth as they mature, specifically through the Suzuki method.
The HSSM is a charitable, not-for-profit organization registered with the Canada Revenue Agency and governed by a Board of Governors made up of elected teachers, parents and interested community members. The Board sets policies and governs the general operations of the School. There is also a Parents’ Association, of which all parents of HSSM students are members, which organizes parent meetings, fund raising and other special events.
We strive to develop children’s natural love of music and to nurture musical talents for personal enjoyment in a rewarding and vibrant learning environment.
