Workshops

5th Annual Suzuki Workshop

January 21

Workshop Description

All Suzuki violin, viola, cello, and harp students (pre-twinkle & up) are invited to a fun and energizing workshop!

Study with inspiring guest clinicians and play with fellow musicians from across the greater Charlotte area! Activities include a Master Class, Old Time Fiddle Class, Repertoire Classes, Djembe Drum Class, and a fun final Play-In Concert!

Parents are expected to attend classes with their students. Lunch is on your own.

What is a master class? Students will be grouped into small learning teams of similar age and level and each student will receive a lesson on a polished piece. Dr. Suzuki felt that we learn just as much from observing others as we do in our own lessons. All Full-day students will receive a master class as part of their registration. Half-day students may choose to add one to their day.
