    About Dr. Shin-ichi Suzuki
    Dr. Suzuki believed that talent was not inborn but could be nurtured starting at a very young age in a nurturing environment. “We were all born with a high potential, and if we try hard, we can all become superior human beings and acquire talent and ability.” Suzuki believed that if all children of the world could develop beautiful hearts and minds through the study of music that perhaps we might have world peace.
    About our 2019-20 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 2019-2020 we will proudly celebrate our 28th season! Gretchen Paxson-Abberger has been the artistic director of 90 plus students since 1999. For the past 10 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 and Intermediate levels, and a Tuesday morning Suzuki Pre-School Music classes (for 6 months – 3.5 years) taught by Alison Porter.
