Directed by Drs. Wesley Baldwin and Geoffrey Herd, two of the most sought-after pedagogues in the southeast, the Knoxville Suzuki Academy is East Tennessee’s premier organization for children’s music lessons.
The KSA’s mission is to provide excellent musical instruction inspired and guided by the philosophies and approaches popularized by Shinichi Suzuki. Our string faculty are trained Suzuki teachers and are actively engaged in the pursuit of excellence in Suzuki teaching. Each child’s music lessons will be a collaboration between teacher, parent, and child, and feature a nurturing, encouraging, yet disciplined approach.
