About TESS

Becki Christopherson, owner and primary teacher at TESS, is a life-long Suzuki student and teacher. She understands how the Suzuki Method can unlock the unlimited potential in children. Parents and children are both nurtured through the skills exemplified in the philosophy and pedagogy created by Dr. Suzuki to achieve their best as musicians and people.  

Parents are offered support to aid them in their own musical knowledge and to assist them in their crucial role as the home teacher. Courses of Study range from introductory Pre-Suzuki classes, to Suzuki instrumental instruction, all the way to an Advanced Program of chamber music, composition and other electives. Private study at TESS is not required to take advantage of our Advanced Program electives.
