Suzuki Music Lessons Info Meeting

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20 AT 8:30 AM IN MUSIC ROOM

If you are interested in Suzuki music lessons for your child, please join us for an introduction with Suzuki instructor Andy LaFreniere this Thursday at 8:30 a.m. in the Music Room. Andy will show a short film from the Suzuki Association of America, explain how the program works, when lessons happen, what parents can do to support their children and the practicals (where to get guitars, what size, how to practice, etc…) WMS parent Gilllian DesJardins, whose 2 children have been studying with Andy for 3 years, has offered to speak to anyone who is interested.

Feel free to be in touch with Matilda or Ellen for more information about this meeting or about Suzuki lessons at WMS in general.

Student lessons are $45, usually 30 minutes in length and are scheduled mostly in the mornings before school. Andy will measure your child for the correct size instrument and tell you where they can be purchased as well as the books and CD’s you will need.

Here are some links to information about music lessons and Suzuki.
