UO to host Suzuki Strings open house
Families with children ages four to six years old who are interested in beginning violin or cello lessons are invited to a free open house hosted by the University of Oregon’s Suzuki Strings Program on Saturday, Sept. 29.
Designed for participation by both parents and children, the morning will include live performances by string students of all ages and the opportunity to meet teachers and staff, tour the facilities, and receive detailed program information. Children are welcome try instruments hands-on.
Families can meet at 9 a.m. in Thelma Schnitzer Hall (room 163) of the Frohnmayer Music Building, 961 E. 18th Ave.
The UO Community Music Institute’s Suzuki Strings Program offers comprehensive, high quality string instrument instruction to children and serves students from the preschool through high school levels. Professional faculty and UO student string teachers serve students ages four and older in Eugene and surrounding communities.
In addition to weekly individual lessons, students receive weekly group classes in repertoire, note reading and performance development, as well as guest master classes, workshops and enrichment classes.
The Community Music Institute, a partnership program with the School of Music and Dance, will celebrate its 20th year in 2013.
The Suzuki Strings program is currently enrolling new students to begin lessons this fall. To register or receive more information, visit music.uoregon.edu/cmi or call 541-346-5660.
