Denison Suzuki Students Perform In Goodwill Ambassadors Tour
Posted: October 18, 2004
Piano and string players ages 3 to adult will embark on a Goodwill Ambassadors tour beginning this fall as part of Denison University's Suzuki Program. The first stop on the tour will be a performance at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday (Oct. 30) at the Inn at SharonBrooke in Newark. The performers, who will be clad in Halloween costumes, hope to share the joy of music with the residents at SharonBrooke and with others in the community during additional tour stops throughout the academic year.
The Denison University Suzuki Program currently has 90 students enrolled in the program. Instruction is offered in piano, violin, viola and cello. The Suzuki Program is based on the "Mother Tongue" principles developed by Shinichi Suzuki. Suzuki believed that children learned to speak their own language fluently with these principles and that other skills could be learned at an early age using the same approach. The six essential principles are: imitation, repetition, addition, encouragement and improvement. For more information about the Denison Suzuki Program you are invited to attend an information session at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday (Nov. 14) in Burke Recital Hall on the Denison Campus. Contact Mary Hawkins at 740-587-5609 for additional information.
