The Neighborhood

Southside Studio is very proud to offer Suzuki Method lessons, where the parent is always present in the lesson, taking notes, and sometimes even taking part in the lesson, playing the instrument, in order to be able to help the student play at home in the days in between the private lessons. If you can’t be in the lesson, we would like to let you know about some of the businesses in the neighborhood, where you can catch up on emails, grab a bite, or pick up a gift for a loved one.
