About our 2017-18 MNjcc Suzuki Program
The MNjcc Suzuki Program (formerly the Bloor jcc Suzuki Program) was started in 1992 by May Ing-Ruehle and Louise Hanly. During 2017-18 we will proudly celebrate our 26th season! Gretchen Paxson-Abberger has been the artistic director of 90 plus students since 1999. For the past 8 years we have also offered a 5-day summer music and arts day camp in July, boasting a roster of well-known guest artists, and our talented MNjcc Suzuki teachers. Along with our regular roster classes, we will continue to offer Adult String Ensemble Classes: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced levels, and a Tuesday morning Suzuki Pre-School Music class (for 6 months – 3.5 years) to be taught by Alison Porter.
(Ages 6 months-3.5 years) 10:30 - 11:15 am
No prior musical experience necessary. Must be accompanied by a parent and/or caregiver. Children will experience some of the fundamental Suzuki concepts, while learning some of the string repertoire tunes and rhythms, through movement, singing and games. A wonderful foundation before starting on an instrument. Classes are taught by Certified Suzuki Early Childhood Education instructors (SECE).
