Hello SMES Suzuki String Academy students and families,
Because SMES is closed for Fall break on Monday October 21, and is closed for a Professional Community In-Service day on Tuesday October 22, there is no Suzuki group class and there are also no private lessons at SMES on Monday and Tuesday, October 21st & 22nd, 2019.
Hi SMES Suzuki Academy families,
Below are lists of what to go over for Tuesday's class.
Also! If you are signed up for doing the recital, you will be sharing your recital piece with the class on Tuesday.
Hello SMES Suzuki Academy, here are the lists of things to prepare for group class next week. As usual, if there is something in these lists that you haven’t yet worked on with a teacher, you need not practice it this week.
Last Tuesday we announced the SMES showcase recital is coming up at the end of October! Please check your calendar and let us know if you are able to attend. Talk to your private lesson teacher about what you can share at this performance. Even if you don’t plan to share a performance, do plan to come support and applaud for your fellow students and classmates!
SIGN UP FOR THE FALL SHOWCASE RECITAL
Thursday, October 24 @ 6:30pm-8:00pm

The Fall Showcase Recital is an opportunity for any students in Grades P through 12 enrolled in a 2019-2020 Arts course to present solo or chamber ensemble musical works in a formal setting in the beautiful acoustics of the Marcus D. Hurlbut Theater at the St. Margaret's Performing Arts Center. The Recital is open to students of ALL ability levels--there is no requirement to play any specific repertoire.
The piano for this concert is our flagship Steinway Model D concert grand, which is available for both solo pianists as well as accompanists supporting other musicians.
