Calling all parents of current and prospective Suzuki Strings students! Don’t forget the parents’ meeting on August 21 at 5:30 p.m. in Carrier Lodge! We’ll have lots of new information about plans for the program this year, including cello group lessons, group violins, orchestra, and ensemble. And we’ll have the registration form for the coming year. Prospective family’s, come meet the parents of current students and learn more about the benefits of our program!
To find us, go to the South end of First Street (along the river). Carrier Lodge will be on your right at the very end of the street, where it intersects with 8th Ave. S. You can’t miss our big parking lot. If you live in this neighborhood, it’s where you go to vote.
Tonight we had the first orchestra practice and parent’s meeting. The kids are already sounding good! Thursday is the opening play-in for all group violin and cello students. We will start with another parent’s meeting.
I’ve updated the look of our blog. The main reason was so we could have a wider page, which will be nice on the Calendar page. I’m now able to embed a calendar from Google, which will be easier to update. I’ve posted the Orchestra, Ensemble and Group Lesson dates for September and into October (those are tentative).
