This upcoming March, SSM is introducing a listening challenge and get to know a composer project focusing on Felix Mendelssohn!
Goals: Listen at least 30 minutes per day for a total of 1,000 minutes during the month, the more the better! Purpose: To highlight the importance of establishing and maintaining a daily listening routine and to experience the joy of discovering and learning new music
As dictated on the Mendelssohn document, each week in March we ask you watch or listen to a specific work of his. The month will end in a field trip to see his violin concerto performed by the Madison Symphony Orchestra’s concertmaster Naha Greenholtz on April 7th at Overture Hall.
Extra information and musical listening of his can be heard March 4th through the 7th on 98.7WTFM as Bill McGlaughln’s Exploring Music will be featuring the composer as well!
Starting off the month is his famous A Midsummer Night’s Dream Scherzo which can be watched below. Happy listening!

Graduations will be celebrated at two special recitals at the ends of each semester. We are now following guidelines that were established by Dr. Suzuki for graduations. We will continue to adhere to the graduation parameters on our policy page online. Students who are ready to graduate will perform a solo from a select list of pieces as well as perform with their particular book speciﬁed graduation piece. The student is required to perform the volume that they are graduating from in their private studio. We are excited to truly celebrate these Book milestones in a very special way which honors the graduating students.
