Hello! We are DYV.
DYV teachers youth ages 3-18 to play violin and viola using the world-class Suzuki method. This approach nurtures students' ability to perservere, be creative, embrace hope, and to collaborate and empathize with others.
We also learned to play in styles reflecting Detroit's rich musical world from local artists as guest instructors. These collaborations - such as our hip hop violin album! - develop positive cultural identities in us as Detroiters.
Since 2010, DYV has made quality arts education free & accessible to youth from Capuchin Soup Kitchen
"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
