Ann Arbor SuzukiVIOLINS OF THE SEASON
Ann Arbor Suzuki Institute

The Ann Arbor Suzuki Institute provides music instruction based on the idea that every child can learn to play music, just as every child learns to speak. For almost 50 years, a dedicated group of instrumental teachers, all specially trained in the methods of Dr. Shinichi Suzuki, has helped to raise generations of Ann Arbor area musical students, many of whom participate in award-winning school music programs. Wendy Zohar will direct the violin students in pieces from the Suzuki repertoire, as well as holiday, folk and seasonal songs from different traditions with assistance from Deborah Stanton.
