...where every child can!

About the Director


Margrit Moores was born and raised in Germany, growing up in a very musical family. She sang in church and community choirs, played the recorder and at age 10, took up violin.  She studied science in college, earning her BA and MS from Texas A&M University in 1987 and 1995, respectively.  While raising her two small children, Margrit got involved in Suzuki Talent Education and started teaching in 1995. In 2001, she was inspired by her mentor, Judy Offman (Moores School of Music Suzuki Preparatory Program, UH, and the Suzuki School of Houston) to expand her studio services and founded The Suzuki School of the Brazos Valley


Margrit has taken Suzuki Teacher Training with Pat D’Ercole, Judy Offman, Teri Einfelt, Alice Joy Lewis, Flori Godinez and Suzuki Early Childhood Education with Dorothy Jones.  She has taught middle school orchestra in College Station, Texas.  Margrit regularly participates in continuing teacher education workshops through active membership in several professional organizations, and has chaired a number of educational committees. Margrit has brought student and teacher workshops to College Station.  She currently chairs the local BVMTA World of Music program and continues to help coordinate educational outreach programs in the community.

Margrit and her husband, Greg, have raised two musical children.  Gwendolyn plays the piano and Silas plays the violin.


About The Program


Students in the program currently span from 3 year-olds to adults. Young children under the age of ten require the active involvement of a Suzuki parent, who provides a nurturing learning environment at home and practices daily with the child.  Previous musical experience is not necessary for parents to learn how to help their children at home.


Beginner Parent classes prepare parents to confidently assist their children in home practice. While this short-term preparation involves only the necessary basics, parents are invited to continue their studies on the instrument beyond this class. 


Beginning orchestra students in our program receive a wonderful technical foundation, and learn music theory to support their reading skills. 


Students attend weekly individual lessons and

highly motivational group classes, were they learn to play together and study music theory.  School-aged children typically excel in the Texas Music Teacher Association (TMTA) Theory program (Grades 1-12)and TMTA World of Music program; Mrs. Moores currently chairs and administers the latter for the local Brazos Valley Music Teacher Association (BVMTA).


Our Suzuki talent education program includes many performance opportunities, each year.  Frequent performances contribute to security and self-confidence.


As an active member in the Houston Area Suzuki String Association (HASSA), our students have a number of workshop opportunities, each year.  HASSA workshops typically feature nationally recognized clinicians and recording artists from across the US.
