Welcome to the Preucil School

Since 1975 when it was established in Iowa City, Iowa, the Preucil School has become internationally known for excellence in music instruction. The School provides a spectrum of education programs:

The Preucil School of Music offers Suzuki instruction for instrument lessons in violin, viola, cello, bass, piano, flute and harp. The School also offers traditional lessons in voice. Group classes, orchestras, chamber music, master classes and a wide range of related music activities are also available to students of all ages. Learn about the Suzuki approach and why it works.

The Preucil Preschool is a fine arts preschool for children ages three to five that fosters the child’s ability to explore, create and imagine.

Nationally recognized Music Together® classes for children newborn to age four and a parent or caregiver. It’s a fun-filled music and movement experience where children learn through playful, developmentally appropriate activities.

Preucil Preschool was lovingly created 43 years ago by Doris Preucil. The preschool began as a way to spread the joy of music to children and has grown into a school that celebrates not only music, but all forms of art. It truly is a magical place where learning and creativity collide. Please share this video with your friends and help us spread the magic that is Preucil Preschool. ...

Congratulations to Preucil School Piano Students and Faculty on a fantastic Multiple Piano Festival ...
