About the TCSA
The Twin Cities String Academy
Mr. Reaoch is such a seasoned teacher and seems to know just the right way to challenge and extract a student's best.
- Megan Dixon, M.D., violinist and parent of TCSA student
Our curriculum is based on the Suzuki Method, traditional methods, and Alexander Technique.
- Suzuki observed that children learn to speak their native language with amazing success – perfectly reproducing the authentic accent. He demonstrated that, by applying the “mother-tongue method” (immersion, listening, imitation, and close parental guidance) to violin playing, the same level of success is possible.
- Traditional music education develops music literacy and technique through scales, etudes, sight-singing, rhythm games, and a broad range of musical styles.
- The Alexander Technique develops healthy physical coordination, enabling students to play the violin with ease and preventing students from incurring misuse injuries, so common among musicians.
