It had been several years since our first fieldtrip to the Museum of Music Making, and they had made some fun changes in their tour since then, such as adding a drum circle at the end. On April 27th, our school enjoyed learning about other instruments and their history, such as harp, electric slide guitar, and drums. As you can see, it is very interactive there. Students and parents alike joined in on the fun!
For the first time in 14 years, the World Suzuki Conference was held in Matsumoto, Japan, the birthplace of the Suzuki Method. It also happened to coincide with the time that Ms. Marguerite, one of SDSSM's co-founders and dear friends, was living in Singapore. Ms. Elly decided it was too good of an opportunity to pass up, and went on an amazing trip to Suzuki mecca. An article about her travels can be found in the June 2013 newsletter on the website of San Diego's local Suzuki association.
