Practice Tip of the Week
Are you going on a vacation and can’t take your instrument? No problem. Ask your teacher what you can do to practice. Music Theory games are super fun and easy to create, all you need is a portable dry erase board and dry erase markers. Review note values, note placement, rhythms etc. Flash cards are also a great way to accomplish this.
Next fall will be our 7th year printing a concert program. This fundraiser makes it possible for us to have free performances, trophies for the 100 days practice club, scholarships for families in financial need, and purchases new materials to help us learn.
Please contact Tenley in the Suzuki Office if you would like to purchase an ad for the program. If every family purchased an ad then we would meet our fundraising goals for the year!
Fall Workshop-October 27th & 28th 2017
We’re having Fall Workshop early this year! Please mark your calendars for this event and sign up online at www.suzukischool.net under the Workshop Page. Registration opens in August this year!
