Workshops

3rd Annual Suzuki Workshop

APRIL 17, 2021 - All Suzuki violin and cello students (pre-twinkle & up) are invited to a fun and energizing workshop!

Workshop Description

Study with inspiring guest clinicians and play with fellow musicians from across Charlotte! Activities include Old Time Fiddling, Repertoire Classes, Bucket Drumming and a fun final Concert!

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

Add a Master Class! Sign up for a master class with our guest faculty! 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. To keep these classes small, spots will be limited! Limited spots are available on Saturday. Most will be available the Friday before. 

COVID-19 Note: All participants and their families as well as concert-goers will be required to wear a mask and maintain social distancing during the workshop. All classes will take place outside at picnic shelters at Reedy Creek Nature Preserve. We will sanitize common items between classes.
