"When love is great, much can be accomplished." ~Shinichi Suzuki
Currently about 40 students study violin and viola with Detroit Youth Volume using the Suzuki method and place-based education with local musicians. Traditionally, students begin playing between the ages of 3 and 5 years old and continue through high school.
DYV typically accepts new students in the Fall of each year and whenever we have an opening. Please complete an application to be added to our Wait List. DYV is a small organization hoping to grow so we can serve more youth. If you can not get into the program as quickly as you'd like, check out the following alternative music programs for youth in Detroit: Weekend School of Music, Community Music School, Notes for Notes, Crescendo Detroit, Urban Stringz, Suzuki Royal Oak, Melody Piano Detroit, Third Wave Music, Circle of Arts, Motor City Music Together, Girls Rock Detroit.
