We have options for everyone! Lessons offered primarily in English and also in Portuguese.
Meet the Instruments

This is a fun introduction to the violin, cello, piano, recorder, guitar and singing. Students will learn about each instrument and experience playing each one. With lots of singing, movement and games, your child will fall in love with music and choose the instrument for their musical future.  


This class is not required for participation in  Suzuki lessons but is highly recommended. 10 week option for children ages 3-5, highly recommended for children who don't attend preschool (€55), and 6 week option for children ages 4-6 (€35), offered at the Conservatório de Portimão on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. 

Suzuki Lessons

After choosing an instrument, you and your child can enroll in the Suzuki Program, Recorder Ensemble, or Chorus. In the Suzuki program, you and your child attend classes twice a week: a private and a group class. The private lesson is the heart of the instruction, and group classes build ensemble skills, peer groups, confidence and facility. There are also many performing opportunities each term, including a solo recital. 


Classes are offered weekday afternoons and Saturdays. Please email us at SuzukiAlgarve at for scheduling information. The Chorus meets on Mondays, 5:30-6:15 (ages 4-7), and the Recorder Ensemble meets on Wednesdays, 5:30-6:15 (ages 5-9).

Adult Lessons

Rebecca is also experienced and passionate about teaching adults of all levels. Lessons are weekly and can be 30, 45 or 60 minutes. Adult lessons are available in person at the Conservatório de Portimão or online.
