Music Program


Teaching music is not my main purpose. I want to make good citizens. If children hear fine music from the day of their birth and learn to play it, they develop sensitivity, discipline and endurance.
They get a beautiful heart.

— Shinichi Suzuki

At NGFS, all of our students have an opportunity to engage deeply in the study of music. By aiming for a high level of musical literacy, we ensure that our students have opportunities to realize their musical gifts; for some students performing will be the ultimate expression of these gifts, for others the joy of listening may be profoundly satisfying.
