All-Instrument Graduation Recitals

SAGWA is hosting its second annual All-Instrument Graduation Recitals for Suzuki students on Sunday, March 23rd at the Woman's Club of Arlington! Each student performer plays one piece to commemorate their completion of one or more Suzuki books. 

We invite you - our families and teachers - to attend any of the three recitals segments (1:45 pm, 3 pm, 4:15 pm). Admission to the recitals is free, though any donation would be gratefully accepted. This is a great opportunity for students to see other young musicians performing at a variety of levels.



About the Suzuki Method

The Suzuki Method works on the principle that all children can learn music through the same process they learn their mother tongue language. With this approach, children can develop their abilities during the early absorbing and sensitive years far beyond what most people previously imagined. [read more]

Young Pianists Play in Chamber Recital

by Jean Carlson - "They look so poised, well into the music," comments one parent during the latest studio recital with piano teacher, Naomi Kusano. Suzuki students are indeed poised at their recitals, it is an integral part of the learning process. But this is a special event for the young pianists. The students, aged 5 to 17 (and two adults), are playing in a chamber recital with two, and in some cases four, string players.
