Suzuki Association of the Greater Washington Area

SAGWA Institutes and Festivals

Teachers, students and families all find motivation in the company of others who value and actively pursue musical development.


The SAGWA String Festival will not be taking place in 2016.  Please look at the other exciting events that will be taking place in 2016.  We are excited to offer smaller and more frequent events that will benefit our reenergized community!


For Students

Students learning to play instruments using the Suzuki approach are encouraged to participate in SAGWA institutes and festivals as supplements to year-round lessons. Participants from pre-Twinkle through advanced levels are welcomed to expand their knowledge and skill through individual and group instruction.

For Teachers

Teachers attend institutes and festivals to continue to connect with the Suzuki community, expand their understanding of the Suzuki method and hone their own musical and teaching skills.
