Children playing violin

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.

The HSSM Faculty is comprised of professional musicians, all of whom are highly qualified and Suzuki-trained.  All HSSM teachers are members of the Suzuki Association of the Americas.

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. See our students in action.
