The Knoxville Suzuki Academy is East Tennessee’s premier organization for children’s musical instruction. Directed by Dr. Wesley Baldwin and Geoffrey Herd, each child’s curriculum is supervised by two of the most sought after pedagogues in the southeast.

The Academy features the world-renowned Suzuki method of instruction, and all of our string faculty are trained Suzuki teachers, registered with the Suzuki Association of the Americas. Each child’s education will be a collaboration between teacher, parent, and child, and feature a nurturing, encouraging, yet disciplined approach. Each child will partake in both weekly individual and monthly group lessons and will join a family of musical peers.

The Academy offers violin, viola, cello and piano lessons of the highest caliber, and works closely with each family to ensure every child’s success.

Our students have gone on to great success with their musical studies, gaining leadership roles in the Knoxville Symphony Youth Orchestra, winning state and national competitions, and a quite a few going onto careers as professional musicians.
