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]

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.

Seeking candidates for Board of Directors
SAGWA is currently seeking candidates to run for the Board of Directors. Serving on the SAGWA Board is a great way to contribute to the association and help make a difference in the local Suzuki community.
SAGWA members from all instrument groups, parents, and teachers are eligible to run for the board. The board will have positions up for reelection this September at the annual meeting and are seeking parent representation in addition to teachers from all instrument groups. Interested persons are encouraged to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
SAGWA is in need of volunteers interested in fundraising, grant writing, event assistance, marketing, and newsletter writing and editing. Volunteering just a few hours a month in any of these areas could contribute to SAGWA's mission by raising funds for scholarships, helping to cut operating expenses, or providing membership benefits. Anyone interested in volunteer opportunities should contact email@example.com for more information.
