Tour Group - Did You Know?

Maybe you've heard?  Our Tour Group is in the last month of preparations leading up to their return engagement at Carnegie Hall on April 9th!  

But wait, maybe you don't know what the Tour Group is?  This quick version is that, this season, the Tour Group consists of around 40 our most advanced violin, viola and cello students and their Faculty leaders.  In the past we have had larger and smaller groups, and incorporated various combinations of levels and instruments depending on the composition of our student body.  For more background, have a look at our webpage here:

Tour Group Webpage

ou will notice on the calendar that this group will take the show on the road to all our group classes prior to leaving for NYC.  But you will not want to miss the opportunity to see their complete performance onstage at the beautiful Christ Church Cranbrook t the Bon Voyage Concert.  This free event will take place Tuesday evening, April 3, at 7:00pm.

Please join us to enjoy the results of this year of preparation, and to celebrate and be inspired in turn!

Summer Suzuki Institutes and Workshops

We interrupt this winter weather with news about some great summer opportunities!

Many of our families choose to enhance their musical education by attending a Summer Suzuki Institute. In locations all across the US and Canada, these events offer an incredible combination of Suzuki instruction, artistic enrichment, parent education and fun social events.  We continually hear how families have reinvigorated their music study through these experiences.

lso, there are periodic opportunities to attend
orkshops which are targeted to a variety of student levels and interests.  We would like to bring the following two to your attention for Summer 2018, these are 4-week workshops offering outstanding instructional and performance experiences to serious students ages 12/13 and abov, and the first registration deadline is February .
