Boston, MA, March 13, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The Suzuki Institute of Boston is a prestigious, non profit organization dedicated to offering young children weekly individual lessons as well as a weekly group class with highly qualified professional instructors. In partnership with the Boston Public School the Suzuki Institute has identified a school in Roxbury that without outside help will not be able to continue with their Suzuki Institute strings program.
Details of the Suzuki Program
The Suzuki program is unique on multiple levels; one is that it includes the parents of the young students into the program offering more than just music lessons to a child, but also a bonding experience with their parent and a new interest for them to enjoy together out of the classroom. Each student, ages 4 – 12 receives a 30-minute individual lesson and a 30-minute group class per week. For the younger students, one parent participates along with them in the classroom and learns the basic steps on the child’s violin so they can practice together at home.
A quote by an eight year old student, “I love my violin because I don’t think about anything else when I’m playing. It makes me feel so happy and I’m good at it!”
The amount of $3,000 must be raised to insure that the Haynes Early Education Center in Roxbury can keep this invaluable strings program for their students and their families for an entire school year. A donation of any amount is very much appreciated, and it will have a tremendous impact on many families in Roxbury and is completely tax deductible. 100% of your donation will go towards this program in this school.
“We have seen the incredible results the Suzuki program offer young children and their parents, from self confidence to a love of learning,” Carla Tardif said. “Music education at this early age has countless benefits and is a privilege that every child should have access to.”
Help keep this program in the school thus keeping violins in these children’s hands. All donations will be gladfully accepted.
