8th SAW Winter Retreat
A special Weekend Workshop for Suzuki Teachers, Parents, and Students
Sponsored by the Suzuki Association of Wisconsin
January 15-17, 2016
The faculty of Suzuki Strings of Madison recommend you attend this workshop. It is an opportunity to experience a Suzuki workshop if you have not attended a summer weeklong workshop before as well as a chance to have some weekend fun if you are a veteran Suzuki family.
Just to be clear, this is not an SSM event. It is sponsored by our statewide Suzuki Association of which SSM faculty are members.
Suzuki Strings of Madison will be holding an in-house fiddling workshop : 2/23 and 3/1
culminating in a Barn Dance /Potluck 3/5. MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR THOSE DATES. More info soon.
We schedule our fiddling worship/dance on alternate years so as not to conflict with the Suzuki Association of Wisconsin Winter Retreat. SSM will hold its annual Suzuki Workshop in 2017.
Save $ and enroll in the SAW winter retreat before November 15.
