After performing with a world-renowned orchestra, Stanford Thompson returned to Philadelphia to start Play on, Philly!, a free, after-school music program for young children in under-resourced neighborhoods that helps them go back into the classroom and become better learners. Thompson gives his Brief but Spectacular take on how music can create harmony and opportunity. http://youtu.be/2iuCi9T8Smg
Here is the link to watch the livestream from the Punahou Symphony Concerto Concert on 2/16/18. All of the soloists did a fantastic job! We are so proud of Ryan and Jou from our Suzuki Program!
“The wood that I choose has to have the physical qualities, but it also has to have a kind of energy,’ said Neumann. “And already it has a voice.”
This video from CBS gives us a glimpse into the fascinating process of making a violin–starting from the ground up!
Here’s a video from NPR for all you “cool cats” to check out…wait for the surprise at the end!
Dear Suzuki Families,
Congratulations on a FANTASTIC performance at Kahala Mall last weekend! We have received (and continue to receive) many compliments from audience members who were very impressed by you all!
We are SO proud of all of our students and appreciate the dedication and patience of all the parents.
During the Holidays – December 21st – January 8th:
1) Please check with your teachers about when private lessons will resume after the Holidays.
2) Please select your recital piece now and start polishing it to a bright shine!
3) Please use this time to listen to your pieces and to review.
4) If you are traveling this break, by ALL means, cialis 20mg please take your violins along! If you absolutely cannot, then make sure to take your music along so you can at least listen to old and new pieces everyday!
Everyone sounded great at Kahala Mall – let’s keep up this momentum into the New Year!
As we spring into the new year, stay tuned for Recital Sign-Ups and announcements about the all NEW 2018 Suzuki Rocks “Play-cation” Workshop coming soon!
Mahalo and Happy Holidays!
Helen, Neela & Lauren
