Pineland Suzuki School is committed to musical excellence, integrity, and beauty in a joyful, noncompetitive atmosphere.  Led by Betsy Kobayashi and Ellen Gawler, the Pineland Suzuki School serves young violinists, violists, and cellists in Central Maine. Pineland Suzuki School is pleased to continue our relationship with the Snow Pond Community Music School.

Pineland teachers are dedicated to making the Suzuki experience a positive one.  The Suzuki method goal is to provide the opportunity to grow up in a positive environment, to be a confident, warm human being, and to be successful in life with a beautiful heart.  Our success comes from everyone working together in a non-competitive, supportive way.  We are happy to be a community where families encourage each other with Dr. Suzuki's dream that all children learn to play beautifully!
